Patient Comments (2)
in New York, NY |
Doctor calls me after his office hours to answer any questions I have of my upcoming surgery. He does not look at you as another body in his busy waiting room as he sincerely wants to help you get better.
in New York, NY |
He answers and explains all questions thoroughly. He has a sensitive nature and doesn't appear to be money motivated.
