I am very happy with the doctor and his staff. They are extremely pleasant and professional and cover all their bases. They are very responsive and truly try to decipher what is wrong rather than medicating you for symptoms. They take great time and care in discussing and analyzing each medical condition. This is very unusual and refreshing in the medical industry. I highly recommend them since they are both caring and top-level experts at the same time. What more can you ask for from a Dr.
