Dr. Traverse is a rare bird. He takes an inordinate amount of time and energy with his patients and is unusually attention-to-detail. He is a medical detective, a tenacious sleuth; and will call colleagues to confer with them about your condition. Plus he's a doll. Will chat you up about sports or whatever--without worrying about time. Dr. Traverse is a special doctor. It's hard not to adore him.
