Patient | June 21, 2018

He looked at my head, gave me pre-printed material, told me to shampoo with two different things and come back in four months.

Dr. King is always polite, cheerful, thorough & the treatment pace is working extremely well.
Patient | May 9, 2018

Dr King provides extensive discussions regarding the time between appointments and how the prior recommendations of treatment, processes, etc. are working or, if not, and recommended next steps. He includes the patient has part of the treatment, the process, etc. It is unusual to find a doctor that goes the distance to ensure the patient is informed about the treatment and follow ups.
Patient | February 26, 2018

Dr. King was extremely thorough. He gave me reading materials & took the time to explain everything.
