    He is personable, takes time to listen and does not rush you out the door. His diagnosis and treatment plan was conservative and thorough. I will definitely recommend him.

    On time. He took the time to read my 30 year file. With his help and Dr Abou.(Internal Medicine) I went from not walking to walking in 3 months ,not being able to take care of myself to doing so. He is a hands on doctor that cares about my health. All because of medicine other doctors was prescribing me.

    Great doctor. Acutally listens and does an examination. I can't tell you how many physicians that try to diagnose you on your MRI. I think he is a rare one that understands how to get a diagnosis by examining and listening to you. Fixed my problem.
