Patient Comments (1)
Napa, CA |
Thorough, explicit, efficient, kind, very knowledgeable and asks for my feedback and input in decision making. I know that he is completely engaged with me and my medical care; a very proactive doctor. Very much a patient advocate; current with the latest research and is open to me as a patient sharing research and studies relevant to my diagnosis. Encourages patients who want to obtain a second opinion; I appreciated that. Can't recommend highly enough.
