    -Pensacola, FL |

    Is a very knowledgeable and empathetic doctor who will take time to get to know you. Doesn't "push" medication as other doctors I've known in the past. Really cares for the well being of his patients and will see you as an individual not a stereotype of your sickness. I'd recommend him to anyone.
