Patient Comments (3)
in Odessa, FL |
Dr. Proper has been my dermatologist for more than 20 years. He has cared for me and my entire family. He is an exceptional diagnostician, who is able to identify skin and other health issues better than other dermatologists because he is also an internist. His knowledge and skill are obvious in everything he does, and his personal attentiveness and follow through are uncommon in today's health care system. He is, in al respects, a 'doctor's doctor' for all of us.
