    Amazing provider, who takes great care and consideration with each patient. Have never felt rushed, and feel completely confident and comfortable with his skill, ability, diagnosis, and treatment plan. The staff, from top to bottom, is thoroughly professional, and equally considerate of individual needs. The term "family" is thrown about casually these days, but you feel as if they are treating you as such. Never, never, never a bad experience or complaint.
