Dr. Corman spent a lot of time discussing options with me. I trust him completely.
June 2018
John Corman is AWESOME: communicates clearly; easy to understand (which i told him); he shows empathy and compassion....wish he could be my GP....an excellent doctor and I´m very happy to be his patient in this situation...and I have recommended him to several people....
June 2018
Dr. Corman communicates in an easy to understand fashion, direct, pleasant, professional and seemed happy to sit back and listen to my questions, which he answered quickly, clearly and with no hesitation. When blood test results arrived 3 days after I returned home, he cared enough to call me directly HIMSELF and explain the results. He also answered a few questions I forgot to ask at my appointment. As I live 260 miles from VM, this was a blessing to me and my family. Dr. Corman surprises me, "at every turn," and always in a good way. Keep him around!
