New York, NY |
Excellent doctor
in Brooklyn, NY |
He is a true professional and caring doctor. Most of all he is extremely knowledgeable, and is envolved in every aspect of his profession; from research to treatment. I've been his patient for the past 14 years, and am very pleased with the care he has given me. His staff his also very professional without being cold. The office is very comfortable and well managed. Wainting time is extremely reasonable. I pray that he doesn't retire any time soon and that he outlives me...
