He is the gold standard for how a doctor should conduct themselves. My injury was from reckless dental care and made worse from medical practitioners that had no idea how to proceed without harming me any more than I was. He was so kind, taking the time necessary to answer any and all questions. I will make the sixteen hour drive to come there knowing I am being cared for by a doctor who is the best!
