Ms. Ruth is so easy to talk to, she adjusted my meds so that I am able to get some sleep now, also she gave me 1 refill, so I can go 6-7 weeks before I need to come back in. She tried to help me set up an app on my iPhone. I m very happy to only have one copay every 2 months, as I am disabled and on fixed income and usually have to choose what expenses I can afford. Thank you
