    Dr Bob has been my doctor for about 9 yrs. I give him the highest marks for his professionalism, expertise, wealth of knowledge, and a willingness to go the extra mile and educate me about my health conditions and taking a true interest in my well-being as a patient. Always takes extra time to explain things to me clearly and I always leave his practice just a bit happier than when I arrived. His office and medical staff are friendly, respectable and deserve equal praise and recognition.
