This was the most comfortable visit with a doctor I have ever experienced. Extremely knowledgeable and a great sense of relief. Thank you.

There was an emergency procedure so he had no time for frivolous small talk. He is an excellent neurosurgeon.

January 29, 2018 6:00 PM

He seemed very knowledgeable but I was confused and he seemed to rush things along. He should have listened to me more. He also spoke to me without using my name as in "sweety" or something like that. I was so confused that I had to call the provider back later.
