He is super! He really cares about his patients. Thinks outside the box. Not a pill pusher.

Waited approximately 15 minutes in waiting room. Waited approximately another 45 minutes to see the nurse. Then saw the doctor who stated my condition would require a Urologist (him) & a general surgeon. No one within the practice (doctor nor any of the nurses) were willing to identify a general surgeon from the online list available.
