    Dr. Milechman is a unique doctor and person. Not only he listened carefully for my complaints but he spent a lot of time reviewing my records from another facility explained in great detail the course of treatments discussed his recommendations for my life style change including diet exercises. He was very kind thoughtful respectful. I only wish other doctors were like him.
