“This doctor is very kind and demonstrates a personal investment. He takes time with you and answers questions. He inspires confidence at a time when you may be feeling uncertain. He fixed me with surgery and I expect to be at 100%. I felt that he was highly competent when it came to the procedure. I felt that it was very easy to make appointments here and generally my visits were timely, never waited over 15 minutes. I also emailed questions and the office responded within an hour each time.” – Patient Review, Healthgrades
