Patient Comments (1)

in Brooklyn, NY
He is a very kind and generous person. He listens to your problem and explains after hearing you. He gives bare minimum tests and you are free to do it from any location.Usually, they refer you somewhere to have a commission, which is kind of industry trend. My mother is his patient too for last...more
