My doctor left the clinic so I had to see this one. I felt that he rushed through the appointment and dismissed my concerns.

Doctor was very nice, explained the risks vs benefits of surgery and never once did he not answer any question I had. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would definitely go back if I need other treatment. Wish there were more physicians with this kind of compassion.
