    He is the best doctor in Wilkes County. He is loved by all of his patients. He is a Christian and treats his patients and their families with compassion. He has left private practice which was a great loss to his patients but it was a huge gain to Wilkes Regional Hospital. As a former patient, a truly miss him.
