SHC Patient, Dec 2016

He could not be BETTER!

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Jay listened carefully to the (long) list of symptoms, asked good questions, did an exam, and figured out that the symptoms were not caused by recent medications (as we had suspected), but an old one. I felt better within days of discontinuing it. Jay's been my doctor for many years, because he is by FAR the best I've ever met. His medical skills are clearly excellent, but his social skills are truly exceptional, which multiplies the positive effect of seeing him. I feel listened-to and well-cared for in a warm and welcoming way, and he genuinely respects me and my intelligence (even when I've been too ill for it to manifest itself).

SHC Patient, Dec 2016
