Wonderful, kind, caring physician. Extremely intelligent. Professional. Cant say enough nice things about him. Has kept Mothers macular degeneration stable for about 15 to 20 years. She cant read but she can see a lot and I believe, as does the rest of our family, that his wonderful care has saved her vision this much.
