Out standing. When he is thru talking to you he has answered all most all of the questions you were going to ask. He talks directly to you. All questions are important. He will answer every question that he is asked. He is interested in finding the answer of what is wrong and how it can be taken care of. The Waite time was around 30 minutes minutes but after the time he spends talking to you you can see that each patient is given time needed for their appointment.n
