Patient Comments (1)
in New Orleans, LA |
He has been a most wonderful and compasionate Doctor, He is full of empathy and understanding and goes out of his way to meet his patients needs and makes sure the patient understands all the options available, listens patiently to all the questions and concerns and rules out all other possibilities before starting a treatment! I have been seeing him for two years and it took me 11 years to finally find somebody that not only writes me a prescription, but it's the BEST for me!
