Exceptional

Dr. Backman has been my GP for 30 years. I trust him explicitly, and he never fails to make me feel heard, cared about, somewhat special. I dread when the time will come that he retires.....he is truly irreplaceable

What a great doctor. He takes as much time as is needed and although very busy, he never makes you feel rushed. His kindness and capacity for empathy are unmatched. He does his research and comes back with several avenues for treatment. He is not quick to hand out a Rx and is amenable to alternative methods of treatment. He has been my doctor 8 years.
