No Worries

I was worried on a couple of his reviews from others regarding bed side mannor and treatment. First let me explain I am far from stuffy, i like to joke around and take life with a grain if salt when I can. I asked doc a couple of serious questions, and of course had to end with a smart comment.. He laugh smiled etc., went with it! Treatment explained everything to me., choices etc. and did a procedure on me within 10 minutes of meeting him. My wife was present in room, cut up with him during procedure (on rear) and all went perfect. I think its on the way you present yourself, others who had negative comments, could have boring dull personalities etc. and he did not know what you were like. He see's hundreds of patients and you can not make all happy!!! No worries, he is a great doctor!
