Dr. M is sincerely a doctor who truly cares about your well being. You're not just another number to move in and out to get a payment from your insurance company. He really does care about YOU as his patient! I told him I walk for exercise and am fit but he shoots me that fatherly look (even though he's younger than me) and gently reminds me AGAIN that I need to lift weights at my age. I know I should (because I have Googled it and he's right but I'm a procrastinator) yet he says it (again every year) with no judgement, no scolding, just a strong push to 'please do it for your health because I care'. He's also the FIRST doctor who FINALLY told me what EXACTLY to look out for breast cancer. We've all heard "self-check-&-when-you-hit-40-do-yearly-mammograms". My first exam he said if you ever feel a lump that feels like your knuckle call us immediately, cancer feels like a rock under your skin. I've always had lumpy breasts but NOW know what I'm looking out for. THANK YOU DR.M!
