Wausau, WI – Sep 16, 2017
He treated my 5 years ago for my Blastomycosis. Great doctor! No problems at all. Why do I write a review 5 years later? because someone just asked my who my doctor was for blasto. His name was right there - how can you forget someone who did such a good job for you? even if it was 5 years ago!
