Dr. B is not only brilliant, he is kind, caring and explains your surgery to you, even drawing pictures. I had to have a parathyroid gland removed which is basically cutting your neck open! I was scared but he actually stopped by before and after my surgery. This was my 3rd in 3 years. I never saw the other doctors before or after. Like I was a piece of meat. GOD really blessed this talented man and I was lucky to find him
