He has been very helpful in a time of great grief and suffering. He is a good man who can make a person who is in excruciating pain bus a smile.I had a hard time with doctors before and so far have found two really good people who happen to be doctors that have actually treated me with dignity and compassion he is one and Doctor Benard is the other.
