Patient Comments (5)

I like him he is a very thorough doctor but you got a watch him he will say one thing and go out of the room and tell the other doctors and nurses another thing!!!!!just be careful and watch what he says closely and make sure he follows through with what he says.....

I trust him implicitly. He does the foot work to find out what is wrong. I've been having mysterious pain and he is the only one of my 5 doctors to actually show concern and try to figure out what is going on with me.
