Doctor very courteous. Provided detail analyasis of my condition and given a full explanation of treatment than can be done. All express concern of my pain level and offer his complele availability via phone or messaging thru My Chart.Reason for "fair" rating for Medical Asst or Nurse prior to the Doctor is when ask serveral questions outside of the visit, she did not reponse but went on the primary questions
