'Dr. D' is one of the VERY best out there. In my 61 years, I have been to so many Primary Care Dr.s, that I cannot count. Dr. D. is compassionate, thorough, attentive, knowledgeable, and willing to keep going to find the answer to the problem. He is not an insurance kisser, whatever needs to be done, gets done. He has a wonderful, friendly bedside manner and is very personable. It is always a pleasure to have an appointment with him and his staff is warm and caring and very competent. Love them.
