Louisiana, Louisiana |
Warm, friendly, open, expert, excellent listener and explainer. Wonderful support staff and when you meet with him he does not rush, acts as though he has all the time in the world for you, and focuses on you as patient. Could not ask for a better doctor, or design one if it were possible.
