The best!!!! from 1 to 10 he is number 11. Is a person with good sense of humor, kind and very professional. I went to an emergency and I did not have the opportunity to speak because of my medical condition but after my surgery I went to his office to a follow up and I had the opportunity to talk and I'm really impressed the way he treats his patients. I recommend 100 %
