Patient Comments (3)

Not very happy with his social skills. He does listen to a certain extent, but questions your medical problems with skepticism. Too bad for a doctor since he should be more open and caring toward human beings that go into his office.

Spends ample time, listens to you, caring, very smart, solves problems. He reminds me of the old times when doctors were in the profession not just for the money, but they sincerely cared about the patients, kind of rare these days.
