How likely are you to recommend Dr. Besner?

(Select your rating)
She was my doctor in 2004-2006. When other doctors couldn't give my parents an answer on what was wrong, she never gave up and was apart of the operation that let me walk again without pain. I will always keep Dr. Besner in my heart and prayers.
