My provider was very professional and explained everything to me in great detail. I got in very fast, and out just ask fast. I give this office an 11 out of 10. I have never been to a doctors office where you got in fast, out fast, everyone was nice, and I didn't leave feeling confused.

He helped to educate me on my health condition in a way that I could understand - He treated me with such dignity and respect and my family too - he would assess me and look into my eyes to study me and get to know how I was feeling - he never made me feel like I was a burden to him or that any of my questions were taking up his time or bothering him - he would bring In a laptop to show me my health condition and I had so much trust in him and his knowledge of my situation - he did an incredible job on my surgery any me and my family are forever grateful to him - all of my follow up visits to him are amazing too - super professional kind and respectful and good bedside manner - never made me hurry - asked me if I had any more questions - no doctors ask that any more these days - also did not ignore me and type my answers into a computer looked at me and had a conversational style the entire time - I am one of his greatest fans- I know he is a treasure and asset to Hamot and to Erie
