He has been a kind, caring support the past 10 years since my PCV diagnosis. I have a rather strange side effect and he always inquires if I am doing any better With itching if I take shower. He in determined there will be a solution to my inability to shower . Have script that so far is a blessing to control my PCV. Always puts me at ease. Hope I never have to change doctors.
