Best doctor ever. He knows how to put you at ease and keep your head up when faced with a scary situation. He explains everything and takes his time answering all questions. Very personable, a true people person. I would hands down recommend him to any of my friends or family.

Not helpful. Have fissure, went to him for treatment after dealing with the fissure on and off again for years. Pretty much tells me he can't do anything for me. He didn't console me when I was upset bc little did he know or care thay it was affecting me to the point where I was suicidal. He told me to, come back in 6 weeks. The pain became so terrible that I had to quit my job. I am now seeking care somewhere else. He was informative but most of the information I already knew.
