Patient Reviews
Dec 02, 2021
Such a friendly, personable man. But more than that he's a doctor who really seems to know what he's talking about. He suggested what was wrong with me even before a biopsy showed that he was spot on in his estimation. He's so easy to talk to, has a great sense of humor, and always seems willing to take whatever time is needed to explain and discuss the problem at hand.
