Patient Comments (1)
in Washington, DC |
Dr. L is simply the best doctor that has ever treated me. I came to his office in a great deal of pain, I cd not even walk properly and not only he spent the longest time I've ever been with a doctor to really get to know my case, but he was also so wise in his diagnostic. He was right abt what I have. And since then, he is been constantly following up until getting me to a good place. He is the most patient and kindest with my 1000 questions and fears. I cd not ask for ask for a better doctor.
