    I just switched over to Shannon because my originally provider left. I was nervous at first because I had such a good relationship with my past provider, but Shannon is amazing! She took the time to answer all my question and made sure I understood everything and put me at ease! She has a great presence and very easy to talk to- I couldn’t be happy with her as my provider!

    It was great! Very consent-conscious and informative. I appreciated the lack of weight bias or diet culture-related suggestions. Most medical providers can be very biased, ignorant, and offensive in these ways and I didn’t experience any of that here!
