    Dr Figueroa-Sierra//. Best bedside manner, spoke clearly, and precisely answered my questions and almost as if anticipating my next thought comforted my concern - which in my opinion signifies how well she equally listened, and read my body language as well. I took couple of business cards, and already told my daughter who is an RN in Lee County- how much I liked her, and how I felt- truly taken care of, and medical needs & questions met She rates an easy # 10 + - in my opinion. Thank you, [ ]
