At this point in our lives we have a long history with Dr Golan and have always been pleased with his direct and friendly presentation of himself. He knows us well, treats us as respected adults, tells us what he thinks, and gives us a sense that we have been heard and understood. Today he gave us good news and told us he wants to see us in a year. While we'd be happy to see him sooner, a year interval after a visit to a vascular surgeon has a nice ring to it.
