Patient Comments (1)
in Chapel Hill, NC |
He was very friendly, warm, engaging and open. I felt like we were old friends. We spoke for a substantial time and did not feel like he needed to be seeing another patient. He listened to my questions and answered in detail. His advice was logical and clear.
