in Trussville, Alabama |
Dr. King is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met. I had a heart attack at 55 and he has been excellent taking care of me. I have a defibrillator that he recommended and it monitors my heart. He is very caring and takes as much time as needed and he really listens to his patients. I would recommend him to family, friends and anyone who wants a caring doctor.
