The doctor was very impressive. He discussed options, checked my records & gave advice about my meds. I did not feel rushed or left without answers.

This year has been the a life changer and emotional event. Dr. M. is very professional and the best. I do think that he may forget that even though he is well accomplished in his area, how scared the patient is about the ENTIRE aspects of their illness. (outside the hospital as well)
