He listened to me and respected what I had to say. Just a few minutes ago, I got a personal call from him with my MRI results from yesterday. that is the first time in many years that I actually spoke with the doctor. It's usually a staff member or nurse that calls with the results or they're sent via the web portal.

I commented to the doctor, as to what a GREAT staff her had. The Dr. was also AWESOME. he explained everything to me and what to expect, helped me with my situation.
