Baby Dr.

Dr.B delivered my son. He obviosly did a fantastic job because my son is now 33years old and off traveling the globe. If I could have found a Dr. half as good we wouldn't have had my daughter at home. Although she turned out pretty ok and went back to AK to raise her son. So in my opinion he was a 4 star. He wasn't a bad boss either. I worked as his nurse in Fairbanks until my son was born. I've never worked any place I enjoyed more. DAB
