Dr. Bonefield was very professional, considerate and knowledgeable. He listed to all concerns and took my personal desires into consideration. He didn't beat around the bush but gave concise and clear answers to all questions. He had a great "bedside" manor and was really nice. He made me feel confident in his medical judgement
