in Allenwood, NJ |
What a guy!!! friendly, easy to talk to, not your normal egotistical medical doctor. Like a new friend you met at a bar sharing experiences over a beer. Very knowledgable; takes as much time as needed to explain any questions. Always smiling, very upbeat. The consultations before and after the operation were the same.......he couldn't have been nicer and spent as much time as needed to explain any questions we had. He's the kind of guy you'd want sitting at your dinner party table.
