Very professional. Obviously knows his material—and was appropriately compassionate. Great demeanor. Office staff was fine and timely. He is running tests in a few days, right before Christmas. I appreciated him very much.

Little one on one time was spent with the patient, especially for the level 4 charges submitted to insurance. A consultation less than 10 minutes in length was over $1,000.00
