He has helped me tremendously and would highly recommend him. Unfortunately for me ,he is closing his Richmond practice. He will be missed. I had unbelievable panic attacks. He was my second Doctor and he has been great for 17 years. My level of 10 of panic attacks went down sharply because of great treatment.
