I feel very, very fortunate to have him as my doctor. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and has a firm grasp of my medical history, despite having only seen him twice thus far. On top of that, he is kind, compassionate, funny, and seems like he has all the time in the world for me- despite the fact he is very busy. I repeat, i feel VERY lucky to have him as my doctor!

Excellent Doctor. I had very serious anxiety and the doctor helped me understand what was wrong and how we could solve it as well as how long it would take. He also has saved me at least 3 visits via being so responsive 24-7 on the my health app. He is so great!
