The BEST of the BEST. He wasted no time, knew exactly what he was talking about, and scheduled tests appropriate for me. I’m young and Black (26), and for my issue, I saw a doctor 6 years ago who dismissed me very quickly. I love that he didn’t assume, he listened, and he ordered me the right tests bc of it. I now know my condition and I am so very grateful. I now know what it is bc of him.
