He is not only our trusted physician but more like a great friend. He knows our children and grandchildren. He cares about your family! We share a common love of golf and he always manages to ask about my game after the visit! He seems very much like ‘an old school Dr’ where he is more than ready to make a house call if warranted. He has offered to drive me to the hospital when I had a heart issue! Now that is dedication. He also made a house call to a dear friend when her diabetes went out of control. It’s very comforting to know that he is always accessible in the event of an emergency!! His dedication to his profession definitely shines through. His staff is equally as devoted to his practice and make you feel welcome. That speaks volumes because it is your first impression.
