Due to his newness in the practice of medicine in general, there are a few experience gaps which will likely quickly be filled as he gets more practice.Overall, he's an excellent listener, makes good eye contact, explores options, and involves the patient in proposed solutions. Those are all strong positives for recommending him.

First visit. I felt he listened well. Seemed empathetic. He suggested a follow up in two weeks, which delighted me. Afterward he suggesting postponing for three more months, although there is no change in my painful condition. Huge disappointment. I asked him not to, and he agreed to keep next appointment in two weeks.
