Went to Dr. Stewart this week. I received two confirmation robocalls. I skipped the first one (three days before my appt), and received a second one the next day. No problem with not being reminded. For the appt, Dr. S and his staff were all great! Helpful and very willing to spend time answering my questions. Highly recommend!

I accomanied my father for scalp cancer treatment. It became a more involved procedure than expected. He numbed my father so he didn't feel pain and engaged us so we didn't get anxious. Certainly changed my feelings about wearing hats. A very very personable physician-refreshing!

Schedules appointments a year in advance, they made 1 reminder call which I didn't get. If you don't get the message they send you a bill for a missed appointment. Every other doctor I deal with will make contact with you and get you to confirm appointments made so far in advance. They obviously don't care or don't need the business. Paid the missed appointment bill and found a new doctor.

He is always very thorough and caring about his patients. With the intensity of the procedure of removing skin problems, he has a very positive and pleasant personality that takes your mind away from what is happening. He makes me feel very calm and confident in what he is doing. I have been treated by him several times and will go again.
