Based on what I've read, he seems like a true expert in his field (I do a lot of research before seeing any provider and always aim to see the best). He validated my concerns. He gave alternate options to address my comfort level and financial situation. I remain impressed that his initial diagnosis aligns with what I suspected I might have (which is a rare and frequently misdiagnosed condition). I appreciate his confidence, answering my questions fully and providing explanations and data-based facts. He has been approachable and compassionate in the few interactions we have had this far.
