This provider is very knowledgeable, courteous, and patient.

June 05, 2015

He's willing to admit the diagnosis is a work-in-progress and I trust him for that honesty. If/when things change down the line, I'll know that my treatment now was to address the symptoms of a hypothesis rather than a definite diagnosis.

June 04, 2015

The doctor and the staff were exceedingly friendly as well as professional.

I was very nervous at first for my first time going to the office but as soon as I started talking to the nurse then seeing the Dr I felt like I was at home! I highly recommend! !

March 10, 2015

At first he and I both thought that I shouldn't have seen him but later in the exam we realized that he was very helpful in steering to the specialist that I really needed to see.

February 26, 2015

he was excellent and his office staff took extra time to assist me with my concerns

February 10, 2015

My experience with the provider was very positive. The Doctor and nurse were very polite and listened to my presenting problems. I am frustrated, however, that no one seems to put a name or firm diagnosis on the cause of my pain / condition.

January 21, 2015
