    ???????Very knowledgeable physician that genuinely care about his patients. He has superb bedside manners and ALWAYS take time to listen to his patient in order to make inform decisions about their treatment and care. I have been his patient for 12+ yrs and he has cared for me after my neck surgery and continues to provide necessary treatments. He is very honest and trustworthy. My wife would attend some of my visits and noticed his professional level of care, she is now a happy patient.
