My only comment is that she is very sharp, very knowledgeable, and conveys a lot of information in somewhat of a rapid-fire manner. [PHI] it would be helpful if she could slow down a little bit.

She always takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns, asks me questions, and address any issues I want to discuss.

I also appreciate her/NJH staff for being advocates for me at it relates to insurance and RX approval/appeals... it's made all the difference in my care and ability to live as normal of a life as possible.
