The amount of time, level of interest, extent of his questions and the detail of his answers to my questions were all well beyond what I had experienced in my past. He remained involved at a primary level, meeting with me (in addition to his staff) during each appointment until the treatment plan was determined and he was able to confirm with me that it was working. Given the significant practice growth, I now see other clinic physicians, but could see him upon insistence. Highly recommended

Had my first appointment with Dr. P this week. He was excellent. Explained options, gave me information to research, was kind and caring. I wish all doctors, no matter their speciality, treated patients as he does. His nurse was also kind and sweet. She was great, as well as the office staff. I hope all of my visits go this well.
