Patient Reviews
Nov 26, 2023
He is funny when you get to know him. He is business tho and expects you to do your part and follow instructions. He wants to take is slow and steady to get a better lasting result and less complications as opposed to some others that want to excel the pace. I needed medical records and have finally found him in New Orleans. I just didn't get them when he shut down practice.
