Very professional made me feel comfortable to trust him for his help. Was understanding and took the time to hear and listen to my concerns. Gave me several options for treatment and did not pressure me into any of them. He let me choose which one I wanted to begin. He stated his opinions and findings clearly and answered any questions I had and told me if there was anything else that I may think of at a later time to call him. Over 30 years experience and still has desire to keep learning!
