Patient Comments (1)
in Brooklyn, NY |
Great manner and very thorough. Talked me through my options and made me feel really comfortable. Spent more time with me than I expected. And offered opinions on topics which weren't his specialty but I was worried about. Lastly and most importantly, even though he's a well respected surgeon he's not jumping to cut me which I appreciate.
Thank you for the kind review. I pride myself in the time to speak with patients so they are comfortable with the treatment plan.
