Patient Comments (1)
in Bridgeport, CT |
My mother's only complaint was that after hearing from everyone that Dr. Persing was the very best there was, the actual surgery (MOHS Reconstructive) was actually performed by two younger understudies. One was his son, so - like I told my Mom - let's assume he had a great mentor. And all preliminary visits, recommendations, subsequent exams, follow-up visits, etc. were done by Dr. Persing himself.
