Dr. Pierpont is extremely careful with his patients. He will take as much time with you as you need. If you need a good deal of time, you get it. This means that there are times when you may wait while a patient who needs more time gets it. It's not a factory where you're processed through as quickly as possible. He is extremely gentle and kind.
