Excellent Doc very thorough and percise. Friendly with a good sense of humor. When the medical tests came back he gave good understandable explainations on what was happening and why. He prescribed medications when needed always checking first on if it was working as it should by asking quedtions and taking a good look. Then modifing the dose if needed. He took me off medications that he throught I would do better without too! Even tho I was a bit affraid to go without it. He always thought of what was best for me. He took time with his patients and listened...not one to make you feel like 15 minutes and out heres a prescription! He was never so much in a rush as not to listen and thoughtfully think about what is going on with you health situation!! I love this guy!! Best Doc I have ever had since the family Doc that my kids grew up with, who is now retired. I recommend him to everyone I know!!
