Patient Comments (3)

He is an absolute gem. He diagnosed my mitochondrial disease after living undiagnosed for several years and has been on my treatment team ever since.. He truly cares for his patients.

He seems to be nice, but he easily dismisses things and doesn't delve into the problem. He missed my diagnosis
