This Doctor is simple amazing. Well educated and informed. He actually save my life when I blacked out when I went to see him for severe jaw pain. I continue to see him. It seems in today's world that doctors just don't listen or care. He really does. My husbands and I just adore him. Thank you to his staff also, whom are so very kind. Deanna Casey, Spencer Iowa
