Patient Comments (1)
in Grand Rapids, MI |
Over many years and surgeries, this Doctor cared for me as one of his own family. At first he is distant and hard to understand. But after a few visits, it gets easier to talk to each other. He is a perfectionist, but friendly, and generous. I know many patients who were not charged for his services. Do not let his place of birth destract you. He is highly educated beyond his era and was teaching advanced surgeons the techniques he acquired over the years. Stick with him, you won't regret it!
