Everything related to the necessary visit to the doctor was top notch. The doctor has a special ability to share in layman's language the medical need that existed. It was ever so comforting to be able to return to this specialist as he could so very well meet my needs and provide assistance. I am most thankful for his valued efforts. He is one can-do doctor. He made a world of difference for me.
