      Honestly this isn’t a normal doctor, he’s a heavenly doctor. Nicest man and doctor I’ve ever met. Knows what he’s doing and will take his time to explain every detail and question that you ask him. Deserves 10/5 stars. Highly recommend to all family and friends.

      Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this doctor. If you need wound care supplies sent to a pharmacy. Good luck. I requested them almost 2 months ago, I’m still waiting for the prescription & letter of medical necessity to be sent. He is a neglectful MD.
