I reccomend this Dr. and office to everyone I know. I always get asked why I drive 45 minutes to see my doctor and then they see him and the nurses and see for themselves. There's not many Drs. and nurses that show care, empathy and compassion anymore so if driving 45 minutes to get that is what it takes then I'm willing to take the drive!
