Patient Comments (2)

I thought he was excellent. He has a dry sense of humor(I loved it). Explained everything, asked if I had any questions, and has a nice bedside manner. He did a great job operating around my ear and down my neck. He has a wonderful nurse who works with him too. I highly recommend him.
