They were thorough, made sure both my husband and I understood every aspect of the surgery and answered any concerns. We never felt rushed and never felt like our questions weren't important. It was perfect from start to finish.
  Overall Patient Rating - September 2020
The doctor always makes me feel like my concerns are validated, my questions are fully answered to my satisfaction, and provides positive reinforcement for positive behavior changes. He is always great about letting me know possible future issues that may arise, which ones I have some control over, and what symptoms I should be alerted to.
