Patient Reviews (1)
in O Fallon, MO |
Professional, great personality and demeanor and could be the role model for doctors of what bedside manner should be all about. Always takes the time to explain in basic English exactly what his opinion is and what your options are. Willing to take the time to explain and answer all your questions and those "what if" scenarios that so many doctors are reluctant to do.
