” I feel they listened and that we may be in the path to a better future. “
” Absolutely love my experience with Harmony. It was my first appt and the audio messed up a little but we got it fixed and the provider really made me feel comfortable and at ease. Really feel good with the appts being online. I thought I may not like it not being in person but being able to see the person makes it feel the same or better. Being in the comfort of your home while discussing issues is way better. “
” Doctor Leitten. Ph.D. was very professional. He let me talk & explain things that are going on in my life. He asked me questions & made me feel very comfortable when speaking with him. Good doctors are so hard to come by these days. My doctor, I truly respected his professional opinion & his advice! Thank you so much Dr. Christopher Leitten PH.D. “
” So far so good. First video chat. Dr. Leitten put me at ease within 20 minutes. Gave me a little more hope. I will rate again as I progress. “
