Patient Comments (1)
in Cordova, TN |
Excellent listener, validated symptoms, proactive in seeking beneficial treatment for infection, thorough, caring, knowledgeable. Very reassured by his competence, experience, and commitment to scheduling the treatment I needed quickly. Stopped by to check on me the day of the procedure that was going to be performed by a colleague - encouraged me and wished me well - very glad I was getting the help I needed. Excellent doctor and healer. An advocate for my health. I could not be more pleased.
