Gives you all the time you need to ask questions about condition and treatment. Nice and courteous. Very knowledgeable. Although the schedule is usually very booked the office tries very hard to accommodate your schedule.

Wonderful, knowledgeable, kind, comforting and answers all questions without a feeling of rushing you out of the office. I have pre cancer on my face and I was so scared walking into his office, and just fine walking out. He explained in lay terms my situation, the plan of how my pre cancer would be addressed and treated and really let me know that he was in this with me. Promptly responds to my questions/comments emails on NorthShore connect . By the way his plan is 100% success!
