    I was seen by Dr Kazi, resident physician followed by Dr Strup. Kazi had thoroughly reviewed my records prior to my visit and had a clear understanding of my desire to get a second opinion regarding my medical condition. He carefully explained all the treatment options available to me which were repeated and expanded upon when Dr Strup joined us.
