Patient Comments (1)

I have seen Dr for 24 yrs. I recommend him to everyone I know. He is easy to talk to and allows you to be pro active in your health care decisions. He is excellent at explaining things and answering all your questions. I have never had a doctor who made my opinions important before him.
