Highly competent and spends a lot of time with the patient and, during hospitalizations, with the family of the patient. He is knowledgeable and cares about his patients and their outcomes and goes beyond any expectations we had about physician involvement. His assistant is Wellington is unpleasant but his nurse, Judith, is very competent and responsive. He returns call promptly. MSPB is not known for the ease of doing business with them and their support staff needs a lot of work but Dr. C is top notch.
