Patient Comments (1)
in Lumberton, NC |
Concerned and compassionate physician who demonstrates true concern for elderly patients. Goes above and beyond what is required for the good of his patients. Communication with patient and family is exceptional. Weighs the severity of health situations and works to alleviate the most serious issue at the time. As the daughter of one of his patients, I could not have asked for my mother to have had any better care that what she received from him. God bless!
