      I went in with prepared questions and he answered them thoroughly. He was familiar with and also reviewed again my test results that led to the surgical recommendation. He met with me prior to surgery and with my husband directly after surgery. He also met with me again in the recovery room. He was professional, caring, and most importantly, highly skilled.
      Did not listen to his patient. Did not communicate with family members waiting to find out how surgeries went. Did not follow up well with patient.
