    So glad to finally get this doctor on my team of doctors. He is my daughter's doctor as well and I remember how kind and genuine he was last time there. Such a cool and pleasant attitude which makes all the difference in the world when you are sick and need good care. Absolutely knows his field of medicine and engages you on your level of understanding on diagnosis and treatment.

    There are not enough characters to tell you how blessed we were to find him. The hospital recommended him because he treated her while in the hospital. It wasn't close for us but after the 1st visit we wouldn't go any where else. For at least 3-4 years doctors where we live only treated the problem. He diagnosed & treated problem and she hasn't been sick since. We've been three times and each time he has made a personal call to talk to us, one time even remembering her birthday! 10 stars!
