Patient Comments (5)

He's an awesome doctor. My heart health has vastly improved under his care. My cholesterol down. I'm no longer living in constant fear of having another stroke. His staff is super friendly and polite. He's also pretty hot as far as doctors go. Up there with McDreamy and McSteamy.
