###Example Usage Pattern

try 
{
	PlatformClient client = new PlatformClient("client id", "client secret");

	// execute the /providers/{id} endpoint, capture the response and access results
	// https://platform.pokitdok.com/documentation/v4#providers
	ResponseData resp = client.providers("1467560003");
	if (resp.status == 200) // this is the HTTP status code
	{
		// response HTTP headers are in a Dictionary in the returned ResponseData.header property
		foreach (KeyValuePair<string, string> entry in resp.header)
		{
			Console.WriteLine("response header <"+ entry.Key +"> = "+ entry.Value);
		}

		// raw response body is in the returned ResponseData.body property
		Console.WriteLine("response body= "+ resp.body);

		// the "data" element of the response body is deserialized and stored in the client.Data property as a dynamic value
		Console.WriteLine("provider= "+ client.Data["provider"]["first_name"]);
	}
	else
	{
		Console.WriteLine("error= "+ client.Errors["message"]);
	}

	// execute the /providers/ endpoint, capture the response and access results
	// https://platform.pokitdok.com/documentation/v4#providers
	resp = client.providers(new Dictionary<string, string> {
		{"first_name", "Jerome"},
		{"last_name", "Aya-Ay"}
	});
	if (resp.status == 200) // this is the HTTP status code
	{
		// the "data" element of the response body is deserialized and stored in the client.Data property as a dynamic value
		foreach (dynamic data in client.Data)
		{
			Console.WriteLine("provider="+ data["provider"]["first_name"]);
		}
	}    
	else
	{
		Console.WriteLine("error= "+ client.Errors["message"]);
	}

} catch (Exception ex) {
	Console.WriteLine("Error: " + ex.Message);
}

Check SSL protocol and cipher

client.request("/ssl/", "GET");
