    Outstanding Doc. I have a great health partnership with him- he has taken time to get to know me, and my lifestyle. I leave each visit with better understanding of what I can do to improve and manage my health in a way I can be successful. Recently moved to the Twin Cities, but still drive back to see him. Highly recommend.
