Dr. Medina is the best! Same reasons as above but he goes above and beyond for his patients. He is kind and shows compassion and is very personable. He is very informative and meets you at your level and explains things very well. He has such a warm heart and kind spirit. That can't be taught in med school. And it makes a huge difference.
