Absolutely amazing and caring doctor.
in Boynton Beach, FL |
This is the general surgeon that takes care of many of the people that work in the hospitals. Why? The answer is because for people who really know, they know that he's the best. Great surgeons. Very efficient and very kind. He'll take his time with patients and his Physicians Assistant Mindy is amazing. He does a great deal of minimally invasive surgery. We are big fans of his and the community is lucky to have this guy.
