    Dr. Julka is an excellent patient advocate. Do not let his quiet demeanor fool you, he is listening and concentrating on the best patient care plan for you. I have been seeing him for over a year and I never have to wait long for my appointment. His care plan is laid out and explained, with no guess work. I wish all doctors conducted them selves this way. Most doctors give you a pill to get you out of their office. Dr. Julka listens to you, runs tests, and provides a solution. Tracy
