Generally I do not write reviews. However, Dr. Minkowitz is one of the best experiences I ever had. I could give more stars if I could. Thank you doctor :)

Dr. Minkowitz is a kind and friendly doctor. Made me feel calm during a really scary procedure for me. I must say that there was no wait time and the fact that I got the results right away was a plus. I will definitely refer him to my friends and family. Very satisfied.
