I have plenty of capacity to understand the words but found providers sequencing confusing.

Dr. King is brilliant!!! He takes TIME to discuss matters with the patient which can sometimes be missing in today's busy world.

He's a little hard to hear at times but excellent info and explanations. I wasn't clear on my prescription (receiving it) and still have no idea when or how I'll get it 4 days later. The info he had on the handout didn't match what he'd told me to do and some of my family history was incorrect. The handout he gave me on my 1st visit was VERY unclear (he's drawn pics on it and made notes that I couldn't really understand or read. ) I faxed it to his office and asked that someone call me to ensure my blood results I'd faxed had been received along with a copy of the handout. Also, if someone could call and explain his handout to me, I didn't get any return calls. He's great but a lot got lost in the cracks.

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.

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