With Dr. S since 2017 - surgically and office visits are not rushed, works well with oncologist (diagnosed with lung cancer in 2017) and recent pneumonia care in hospital was daily and w/assisting Dr. A. Office staff is very efficient -- Got a question, ask, Dr. S will have or find the answer -- Rx not covered? alternate that is -- Outstanding in every respect

2017 this doctor was attentive and professional - he has taken on so many new patients he has very little time to offer- I require a physician that will be there for me and not send me to ER or PCP when I am having a COPD exacerbation . Sad!
