I see Karen Bruce every three months and I call her my Health Care Angel. I have the greatest trust in her, she has been my primary care provider since the beginning. [Karen] oversees my treatment and translates the indecipherable language of medicine to me. She not only monitors my health, but my medicine, suggesting new or different medications, explaining the tests that others have taken but cannot explain. She asks about my life and answers my questions. She is a  erce advocate for her patients. Karen seems to remember that I am a human being, not a blood test.
