    He's the best doctor I've ever had. He really listens and is present when I'm in his office, and he doesn't make me feel bad for asking silly questions about my health. He remembers everything I tell him, and always asks about my family. He also has an unique and interesting perspective when it comes to staying healthy. I highly recommend him!
