I have been a patient of doctor pad for about 8 years and I am pleased, I am blessed to have found him. Any Time I have an illness I can depend on him resolving my issue. He is a kind, softspoken, very gentle man. There is never a wait more than 15 minutes. I highly recommend if you are looking for a primary doctor who is just as I stated above. That you do so and you will have no regrets.
