Patient Comments (1)
in Lake Placid, FL |
I really appreciate his calm demeanor and aggressive yet steady treatment. I've seen him with my mom actually explain what is and what isn't worrisome with manual degeneration and really appreciate his tike with her, she gets really nervous with doctors but felt good with him. Even I got to ask a few questions and didn't feel like I was a bother or rushed out of the room.
