Dr. Sakethou is absolutely a premiere doctor in every regard!! Not only did he take the time to patiently listen and understand all of my medical history, taking utmost care in considering a multitude of factors for the perfect plan of care, but... equally as important, ...he exuded a truly sincere, caring, and very compassionate demeanor throughout each visit, making me always feel as though my care was the only thing on his mind. The entire staff was very warm & caring in nature too!
