I was so pleased with Dr. Idoux that I am going to make all future appointments with him. He really took the time to help me understand my illness. (CKD) Dr. Idoux was the best doctor I have seen in over 6 years at BSW. Not saying the others are bad but he just made me feel that he was going to keep me informed and educated about my illness and give me the best care possible.

I have had doctors in the past the barely looked at me, in fact acted like I was an imposition. Dr. Idoux takes the \'terror\' out of health issues, takes the time to explain in laymen\'s terms and doesn\'t rush through the appointment. He and his staff are always available when I email questions or concerns.

Dr Idoux is fantastic! He is always extremely friendly and it is apparent that he really does care. He never rushes through an appointment, and never leaves you feeling like you are wasting his time. As far as I\'m concerned he is absolutely the best, and S&W is very lucky to have him as one of their providers!
