Dr. David is my doctor and has been since 2012, and he has set the bar for doctors in my humble opinion. I trust him with my life and the life of my friends, and always will. His bed side manor is kind, professional, and natural. He's honest, up front and delivers the worst of news with the best intentions and professionalism, leaving no needed rock unturned. He's my friend.

I had to have emergency surgery 2 times in the past 3 years. I have been extremely satisfied with their professionalism, office staff, and caring and concern shown to myself and my family. I have had no post op problems, promptly came when consulted, explained in detailed problems he found.
