He was friendly and efficient without feeling like you were being rushed out of the office. It was my first visit to the practice so I went over my medical history with him, and he asked the appropriate questions to makesure he got all of the information he needed to know. Also, since he is at Boston Medical he has access to all of my other records from doctors I see in the Boston Medical system, so that was super helpful. I am going to try and see all docs at Boston Med now.
