Patient Comments (1)
in Brooklyn, New York |
Exceeded all of my expectations. His bedside manner put me totally at ease. My recent visit was not only tolerable but also one that I'm glad I made. After only five minutes, his calm demeanor, professionalism, and genuine likeability inspired a sense of peace, and confidence, that was reassuring. I came away feeling that he's a Doctor who really likes what he does and one with whom people easily connect; Very warm and genuine. I felt very comfortable; He instantly won my trust. 5STARS
