It is rare to find a physician with such wonderful bedside manner and customer focus.

He showed what I felt was the appropriate amount of attention and care as well as listening to my thoughts and opinions. He prescribed medicine and advised that I would be sensitive to the sun so I should cover up while out while taking the prescribed medicine. I felt confident in the course of action he took. I am confident in his judgment concerning my health.
