Best Doctor! Took care of my mono-mono twins and now, two years later, they are the healthiest, girls ever
Fresno, TX |
Very knowledgeable doctor! You can tell right away he has passion and loves what he does. He knows what he's talking about and backs up what he says and is direct, but not rude. I can appreciate that in a dr. He doesn't rush with my ultrasounds and answers all my questions in a thorough manner. One of the best doctors I've been to. Will be coming back to him when we are pregnant with our 2nd.
