In addition he told me how he would treat me and solve my problem so I wouldn't have it anymore. Thank God, there is now hope to be free of my illness without getting rid of my 5 cats.

Doctor was great, helpful and knowledgeable. It took nearly an hour to see the doctor from when I got in. Ihad a 9am appt and didn't see the doctor till 10am. A lot of waiting. I'm hoping it was because I was a new patient, but I have a follow up appointment and we'll see.
