    I've seen Dr. Laird 4 times now. Each and every time he is the most patient, understanding, likeable, easy going, polite doctor I have ever seen. He takes his time and listens. He is NEVER in a rush to get out of the room. He has involved my husband in the visit each time, making sure we both understand what he's looking for/at, what he feels the treatment should be. He answers every question with understanding. I feel safe and at ease knowing he is my doctor. THANK YOU DR. LAIRD.
