Very caring and sincere. He takes his job seriously. If you need surgery, he will assist the surgeon if you want him there. He has literally saved my life. I trust him and my children always send along a message when I have an appointment with him. They always want to convey how much they appreciate how well he takes care of their mom. He's just a great all around human being.
