Before they even checked one of Dr Orkins Drs came in and asked me questions on what was going on. I answered them and he was fabulous. He knew the issue and we spoke about it. When Dr Orkin came in he confirmed I had a fissure. The other Dr went over what I needed to do. He was great, even when my baby wasn't in a great mood he didn't mind.
