I absolutely love this doctor. He is so devoted to his patients despite his difficult recover of back surgery. I can't begin to explain how much time he spends with you. Explains your pictures and your treatment options. Doesn't rush you once in the room. The worst part of my visit is just waiting for him but his staff make you feel welcomed n serves you coffee and cookies.

Great Doctor!

Takes time with his patients, which is rare to see these days. Only downside is that you have to wait a little extra. I prefer that than beig rushed in and out like my precious doctors. As some commented below, it is obvious that one person is trying to write multiple negative reviews.
