A doctor who listens to his patient and is sincerely caring.

Review for Dr. Radut

I was concerned that there was a nurse or technician who had her mask under her chin...she was not in the treatment room with me so I don’t know her name but she walked by me a half dozen times and never had her mask up...this does not set a good example and makes us high risk people more nervous.

Review for Dr. Eichman

The doctor explained clearly what to expect from the procedure. He was encouraging throughout the procedure and afterwards. He and his staff were kind, friendly and helpful.
