When this doctor came to my room two times during the first week I was there, he pulled up a chair beside the bed and gave me the feeling that he had NOWHERE ELSE TO BE TODAY EXCEPT WITH ME. He also came one afternoon, after clinicals and rounds, even though he wasn't on the case any more, because my wife asked the nurse if it were possible to return because we had some more questions. HE CAME, and spent time with us. During the office appointment, he was very attentive, and we appreciate him very much.
