Absolutely hands down one of the best doctors that I have EVER had. He was my doctor during my first pregnancy and is now for my second. Good sense of humor, he actually makes you feel cared about, doesn't judge, gives honest respectful opinions. Bed-side manner is absolutely outstanding. Not pushy, doesn't rush you, listens to your concerns and questions. I absolutely ADORE him.
