Genuinely concerned. Asks all the appropriate questions that indicate that concern. Very concise easy to understand explanations. Always seems to be on the alert for the little things that could make a big difference/have a significant impact. Takes the time to listen. As I told my wife, 'It would be fabulous if all doctors you encountered exhibited this level of interest and communication.' Good doc...good person!!!
