Not sure what the negative post was about but this doctor really cares, he spends time, is knowledgeable, follows up the next day with our family... and we even have his personal cell number ... I guess you can’t please everyone 100% of the time, but this doc sure tries

Horrible Care. If you have serious issue, stay way from him. He is good for wellness visits only.
