Good Doctor-Worth the Wait

Dr. Alaia is willing to spend a significant amount of time examining and explaining everything to his patients. Waiting time is bit long, but I can easily deal with that. Have you ever been to a doctor who kept you waiting and then rushed through your exam? He is the opposite. I have no hesitation to recommend him to others. It is very clear that Dr. Alaia is completely knowledgeable in his field of expertise.
