Amazing Doctor who has a personality and is extremely knowledgeable in his expertise. A real Physician who performs procedures one would only want someone of his educational (and further education background) when it comes to oral surgery. It is interesting to learn of the differences in training and education among dentist and actual oral surgeons. Made my decision easy.
