My facial basal lesion had grown quite large and I was quite concerned it would not be amenable to surgery. Dr Sinard was very reassuring and professional. His skill was spectacular and I can see why he is rated so highly. As a RN myself I believe that Dr. Sinard has high standards providing excellent care rarely found these days.
