Patient Testimonials  " I was extremely impressed with the training session I had with the dietician. She was very knowledgeable, informative and careful to consider concerns and needs of the patient before engaging in her basic instruction. She was personable and sensitive to the emotional sensitivity of the patient. I think my visit with Mrs. French was the post positive experience I have had at Sansum Clinic."
