    travel to ogsu takes almost 5 hours. time spent with provider seems somewhat short after such a long travel time.

    I feel when I go up there next week for care for leukemia she helped have a more positive attitude

    I had hoped for more openness for autoimmune treatment but the provider was not familiar with that. She gave good information on immunosuppressants for my condition (aplastic anemia).
