In addition to providing excellent care, this provider always takes time to ask about personal travel experiences from the year. This makes me feel as if he cares about my well-being as a person, not just a patient.

Dr. Strength seemed put out and in a rush when I asked him a few questions. This was my first visit with him so I thought he would spend a lot of time with me, he didn't. Also, me being a 56 year old male, for my first visit, I was expecting a more thorough exam. He did not do a physical prostrate exam, a hernia check or a urinalysis.

since he is my general practitioner, he basically treats nothing but sends me to a specialist in whatever field I need, such as Orthapedics, heart, etc. I now usually only see him for my annual checkups, but he is pretty thorough and listens to my medical problems.
