    The doctor went through the last CT scan compared it with all previous CT scans and showed the differences in detail like a medical professor but which a layman like me can understand. I had 20 questions printed in paper and he answered each question in detail AND wrote the answers below each question. Truly amazing!

    This is an incredibly approachable professional man who also has a superb way with patients. I am so incredibly grateful to have landed on such an amazing physician. He clearly knows his stuff and explained my situation and next steps perfectly (even with all the potential unknowns with my current condition). I feel like I won the physician lottery. I am beyond thankful that he is on your staff
