Been dealing with Dr South for about 40 years, what can I say the guy is good almost like a natural at what he does. Very highly regarded among his pupil's and his colleagues and I have met a lot of them over the years. He is top notch and could have gone a lot farther up the ladder if he wanted. Just a plain old people person like myself and thank goodness for that. No one I trust more in his field.

I've been to Dr South for 2 different conditions. He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable which is something I'm simply not finding when I go to Dr's and specialists these days. He keeps up on the latest information and he doesn't play around. He's confident and moves forward with clear goals that he communicates well. When I left, I knew exactly what to expect for the next appt. He'll give you best and worst and then comes out with best! Highly recommend to all!
