Montgomery, AL |
Dr. Lopez is a wonderful highly intelligent caring doctor.I was a new patient & he took a long time going over my medical history,my needs &he asked questions I had never been asked by a doctor before.we discussed treatments I had undergone as well as new and up-and-coming treatments in the medical field. I truly believe he cares for each & every single one of his patients & he goes above and beyond to treat them in every way necessary.I did not wait long and his staff was extremely friendly.
