He is so wonderful. He made me feel that I could ask him anything. He always makes sure to explain to me tha I can understand. He always makes me feel that no matter what he or his staff is there for me.

If there was an option to give no stars that's what he would get. A couple of years ago I went to him about thyroid issues. He said there was signs I had a problem. But there was nothing he could do now and told me to go home and pray and exercise. Now I have full blown Hashimoto diease. He was rude and uncaring. I think the state I'm in now could have been prevented.
