he is a superb physician in every aspect. He genuinely cares about his patients and their treatment. He asks if it's okay to say a quick prayer, and asks God to guide his hands when performing an upcoming surgery to help my vision. who could ask for better care? not me ! Don't ever let him leave, whatever it takes.
