in Canonsburg Pa |
The nicest doctor I have ever seen. Caring and kind like no other. If every doctor even came close to his expertise and compassion and gentle kindness the health and medical field would be where it needs to be and patients would feel like they matter. Hands down the best Doctor to exist !!!!!!
