Very caring Doctor

He has been my doctor since 2001 and has been wonderful even though I’m not very good at fallowing his advice Like I Should :( He still puts up with me. Couldn’t ask for a better Doctor. I’m Blessed :) He covers everything and does not rush through the appointment. Sometimes you have to wait a long time til you see him because he is so devoted to each of his patients, but that’s okay as he go above and beyond to make sure your treatment and issues are addressed. Bless him.

He and Sue really care

The reason the waiting time is so poor is because he always spends as much time as the patient needs. Guess improvement could be some realistic scheduling. We don't want him to change.
