Dr. Raj Parikh explains everything in laymen terminology, he includes you in decision making & wants to answer concerns you may have. First he wants to see if I can begin the process of helping myself before more serious medications are put into place and before that he does everything systematically in order to rule out what won't work. I respect this physician for being part of my team.
