Dr. Ralph Binder is one of those personalities that ads a smile to many things he says to you. This is quite comforting when you go in with the worst ideas you might've read online or otherwise. He is one the most compassionate and knowledgeable doctors I've known. He looks at the whole array of your medications and tailors everything accordingly. This is hard to explain in a few sentences... I looked long and wide before I met Dr. Binder. His supporting staff Judith, Kim, Sophie are great…
