    Dr. Curtis has extensive experience and expertise. Equally important is his excellent "bedside manner" and communication skills. He takes the time to explain tests and examinations, and the need for and affects of medications. He helps arrange tests and procedures when required, and promptly obtains and communicates results. He has made himself available for telephone calls or emails late in the day and, when needed, on weekends. He even helped out in correcting erroneous hospital records.

    Dr. Curtis is an excellent doctor who obviously cares for his patients. I've seen him for years and have nothing but accolades for both the quality of his medical knowledge and his bedside manner.
