    Sun City Center, FL |
    Very knowlegable and easy to talk to. office was run efficiently and wait time was minimal. He performed a colonoscopy and endoscopy and I couldn't have asked for anything to be handled in a more professional manner. Even my husband liked him and he rarely likes any doctor.
