Patient Comments (2)

Compassionate, empathetic, strive to provide exceptional care to all his patients. Perhaps that is why his clinic is always packed. Expect the wait but leave feeling assured that you are in good hands. Highly recommend him. His staff understands him and work well as a team to support him.

He is a brilliant and kind physician. He is very busy, so hard to get in to see, but well worth the wait. I have been a patient for 6 years and have his staff to be compassionate and extremely helpful.
