My first visit was yesterday and I was very impressed. This doctor listened to me and addressed all my concerns. He did not rush thru the appointment. I will refer this doctor to everyone that needs this speciality. I live out of KC, but I will drive to KC for such a wonderful doctor. Today I have a new perspective on living and taking care of myself.
