Excellent provider.


Came away feeling very good with the information given to me.


excellant doctor


Since my illness is quite severe it is most important that my providers treat me with dignity and respect and above all show a compassionate heart. I felt as though this provider lacked in this area and was a bit abrupt and not really wanting me to talk or to respect the knowledge I have as a critical nurse for over 40 yrs. I am sure he is an excellent surgeon, but since I am not a surgical candidate, he really needs to beef up his bedside manner. Right now, that means more to me than anything else
