Always professional, questions answered in detail, thoroughly explained my results from lab work. But actually taking the little extra time to ask me how I have been. Giving me advice or tips. I believe it makes a difference when your not treated like a number and rushed out. I hope he never retires before me. I know he's the same with everyone, because I can hear him at times when he is with his other patients. He's great. My husband and I are big fans of his.
