One of the brightest Doctor's I've met. Intelligence, common sense, great bedside manner. Takes time and goes above and beyond his duties and treats the entire person, not just the symptoms. Would not complain about anything about him. He's just the best in my opinion !!!

Saved my wife's life when she had a bad reaction to some combined antibiotics that just happened to coincide with an already scheduled appointment.
