I'm seventy-seven-years-old, and no one has ever accused me of being stoic. The procedure that Dr. Nair performed was, literally, painless. Of the many doctors I have been associated with over my life, I should say that Dr. Nair is certainly one of the best. I could not rank him more highly unless my prose drifted into hyperbole.
