He's a great doctor: very genuine, composed, insightful, and calming. I don't really need to say much about his intelligence, diagnostic abilities, and proficiency during the surgeries I've had with him because all doctors should be so knowledgeable.I adore him and his staff even in the uncomfortable circumstances in which I see him.

My visit was not good. Waited almost 2 hours. Referred to a Sonogram and never got results from the office until I called 2 times after my Sonogram was completed 3 weeks ago. Expect to wait a long time when coming to this office.

Both he and his staff were very caring. They asked a lot of questions to get to the root of the problem. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel welcome and comfortable. All of the care and advice given wasvery helpful. I was welcomed to come back and if I ever need to go back he will be my first choice.
