Oh wow, I can't say enough about him.He took the time to hear me as a patient and I felt he was very honest with me. I really like that in doctor's. A long time ago, I promised myself, no matter how a doctor would treat me, I would not lie or pull punches with a doctor, because I feel that would never help me. So he was straight and honest me me and I love that in a doctor and give respect for that. Took me 24yrs to find a doctor like him and he definitely has my trust.
