    Like him alot, very attractive, soft spoken, makes sure you are well imformed. office staff was the best. carol really goes out of her way for the patients and families. everyone was very imformative, have an excellent before and after care emails you almost daily. encourages you to call and stay intouch and gives 5 yrs of followup care for free! dr. office was easy to find, and appointment was on time, if not early. he talked to me and my mom for 3 hours one on one making sure we understood everything and answered all our questions.
