Excellent doctor. Spent a lot of time with me, listening, asking questions, thinking about my conditions. Gave me medicine and then scheduled follow-up, to see how the medicine would work. I highly recommend him.

I am sorry that your feel this way. I am absolutely sure that I have not been treating you recently.

I do feel sorry for those who go on line and place false comments. May GOD guide you and bless you.
