While I do not actively support an online presence when I came across this comment,I was deeply disturbed. My professional ability and achievements are important to me, but caring about my patients as individuals is paramount; one cannot be a good doctor without being empathetic. That's just not who I am. I have no way of identifying you by your comment,but want to encourage you to contact me at the office at any time so that we can personally discuss your concerns. Thank You
