He is a great doctor. He takes his time to make sure you understand the diagnosis. He will not do surgery unless it is necessary. I would not go to any other doctor.

Appointment scheduled for 2:30pm, arrived at 2:05pm, finally called to a room an hour after appointment time 3:30pm. Sat in room for an hour, never heard or saw a single nurse much less a doctor. Do not plan to return and do not recommend.
