I came to his office thinking needed my throat switched and he surprised me.I do not need my throat stretched.He put me on a diet called the lowFODmapp diet which corrected my digestion and corrected my irritable bowel syndrome. He is a true humanitarian. His goal is in the best interest of the patient first. I highly recommend him.
