Patient Comments (2)
North Little Rock, AR |
Very good doctor. You may have to ask for explanation if you don't understand something. But he will take the time to explain if you ask.
Knowledgeable and professional. Bed side manner is somewhat sterile but he is one of the top doctors in the entire state. Definitely knows his stuff. Extremely thorough and meticulous also. Staff is very friendly & explains everything very well. In beginning it is a little harder to schedule an appointment because he only sees 1 new patient a day. Once you get past that his schedule is much more flexible. You must be there 1 hr early the 1st Appt. but expect to be there for 4 hrs minimum.
