I would have to say this is probably the best experience I have had with a doctor and his staff.

This appointment was a very short, basic Followup after surgery, and I think time was a issue as the appointments were off schedule. I would have liked a few more minutes to discuss the surgery, the plan/timeframe moving forward, and ask some questions, but time just didn't allow at this appointment. I will be back weekly, so I am hoping to get time for that at the next appointment.
