Amanda Brei-Moeller, APRN (Ob/Gyn)
~~ Amanda Brei was super friendly, and she spent a good deal of time trying to suss out the issue at hand and looking at the various options I had to deal with it. She explained each option and what it did and showed me the resource book she was using. I’d been dealing with what felt like a low grade panic attack for a few days which was making communication slightly harder than usual, but she took the time to get to the heart of things without pushing and eventually I relaxed a bit and it was easier to communicate.
