    in Fort Bragg, CA |
    Very smart, very well-educated and trained, yet wears it so lightly--doesn't intimidate or overpower or lecture, though he's eminent enough to get away with it. His manner is soft and kind, yet you know he's got your problem under control. Really easy to talk to & get answers from. Well-regarded by his colleagues & staff & much loved by his patients. AND he cured my melanoma--A++.
