Quiet man. Little eye contact and limited spoken vocabulary, however I expect his understanding of spoken and written English is excellent. Is wary of people seeking controlled substances, but who can blame him in the current federal effort to greatly reduce opioid use. There was a mistake re my appointment time. He was ready to drive all the way to LA, but he stayed in Alpine to take care of me. That showed me a lot about his devotion to patient care. Have seen him 5 times. I trust him!
