Excellent dr. Explains everything very clearly. Front desk staff was very helpful. My only issue is that if you have a wheelchair or a walker it’s very hard to get into the building. Heavy doors, small entrance.

Dr Biro is very kind but I felt a little rushed and could not show him all the things I wanted him to see. He was honest about my hair loss and gave me some suggestions although he could not treat the issue.
