My concerns all hinged on what seems to be menopausal issues. Because Dr. Hunter knew I was seeing my GYN next month, she told me to discuss those concerns with her. I understand that, but I would have appreciated her thoughts. I've been seeing her 2x/year for at least ten years, and I value what she has to say.
