    The only complaint is when the provider was explaining that, if I had a polyp, it would be treated with a D & C (I think). She was about to move on, when I had to interrupt, "and that means...?" She explained quickly. I was just surprised she'd use the term, especially its abbreviation, as if I would know what it means. This is a relatively minor thing, though. Overall, I've been happy with my 2 visits to Dr. Herrine. She asks questions, gives proactive suggestions, and seems more genuinely invested than most providers I've seen.
