Review for Dr. Drucker

After meeting Dr. Koenen to discuss my upcoming surgery, I was very pleased with his explanation of the procedure, what would take place,. He answered my questions very thoroughly and took time, never felt hurried. I would definitely recommend him.

Review for Dr. Keonin

Dr. Helmink took the time to carefully explain the procedure to me and was a good listener. I found him to be a genuine, caring individual, which seems to be more and more of a rarity among doctors nowadays.
