Patient Comments (3)

He made me feel very comfortable in having a procedure done at his clinic and explained thoroughly what was going to happen. Throughout the procedure, he would stop to ask if I was doing okay before proceeding. The fact that he has a sense of humor certainly helped deter any anxiety.
