A diagnostic and ultrasound superstar. I had a combination of problems that had been difficult to diagnose, let alone figure out an appropriate treatment plan. He was very detailed and complete. I left with a clear understanding of what the problems were, and how to address them. He did not recommend any unnecessary testing.
