Patient Comments (1)
in Folsom, CA |
I came to see Dr. Bistrong to check on some respiratory issues and found him to be professional but with a warm manner. He explained everything in a way that I could easily understand and treated me with great respect and listened to my concerns. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone seeking a professional who is also personable. The staff is equally professional without being cold or impersonal.
