The best Doctor I have ever met. So Caring... So smart and well knowledged. He has become a friend to my entire family because that is what he thinks about this patients. He removed my right upper lobe of my lung in 2003 and I still go yearly from Az to NC for my checkup as they are the only Doctors that I trust. He is always just a email or phone call away.
