The second worse Dr. I've had in all my life. He treats patients like they're a MacDonolds drive through customer.
It was my first time a newbie ! The entire experience was painless (from what I remember). Team is extremely efficient and personable. Carl my nurse put me at ease with his jokes and answers any and all of my questions. Once wheeled into the procedure room I met Doctor Kelfer where he explained the procedure & then I was out in less than a minute later. Did I mention the nurse gave me a heated blanket, dimmed the lights and put on great music while in the procedure room!?
