He is highly knowledgeable and personable. His practice is busy and waiting time varies, but worth the time. I moved away for 3 years and now back in Miami I will be seeing him and taking my daughter as well.

One of the smartest, most capable doctors I have ever dealt with and I am 57 years old and have dealt with plenty! He handles so many things in office which saves me a lot of time from having to go elsewhere.
