Patient Comments (1)

He was my doctor for 10 years until I moved out of the state. From when I first got diagnosed with chronic kidney disease to when I started dialysis to when I got my kidney transplant, he was great throughout it all. If you can get him as your doctor, get him because he's awesome at what he does.
