He’s very personable, and took time to address my questions, concerns, and actively listen. I was also impressed with his knowledge regarding my autoimmune thyroid condition as well as my blood disorder. Exam itself was quick, and the entire process was efficient. Office staff was also very nice. Overall, the best OBGYN experience I’ve had in Katy!
