Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Fivgas was very patient and explained things to me in laymen terms and even though his office was obviously very busy, he did a thorough exam, patiently answered my questions and explained things well to me. I had what was potentially an urgent issue and they worked me and were very pleasant...more
