I have been going to Dr. Usedom since 1988. He has actually saved my life. After my heart attack in 2004 Dr. Usedom would take time out of his busy day to call and check on me. He is very knowlegable,communicates well and makes one feel like you are his only patient. I have never felt rushed...more
