Extremely knowledgeable, proficient - Truly great doctor

Performed arthroscopic surgery (heart ablation for tachycardia) . I was *Really* lucky to get him, he's close to retiring. He has decades of experience, but still completely keeps up on the latest research, procedures and tools. He was cheerfully willing to answer my ridiculous amount of questions. and after my procedure, the arrhythmia completely went away, and there were no complications. He's thorough, friendly, - just an excellent Doc. I'm glad for him that he's retiring (I think 45 years is enough) but I feel bad for the patients that have to deal with his replacement. Maybe serendipity will come again, and he / she will be equally as good. But I wouldn't bet on it.
