Patient Comments (1)
Moundsville, WV |
He comes across as brusque but decent- what I'd expect from a specialist. He does seem to listen closely to patient input. He has an NP (and I'll always respect an NP's opinion and suggestions, easily as good as an MD's) take care of less important and urgent cases- exactly as I'd expect.
