Four Stars

This physician has abundant knowledge and skill. He is not,however, "hands on". He does ultrasound exams at every visit and xrays at most visits and he relies on this information and that from lab tests to adjust treatment plans. He does not feel joints for swelling, warmth or tenderness as others do and he does not ask the usual questions.That said, he is knowledgable and he does treat his patient appropriately.
