Dr. Behar is a great care provider. He takes the time to listen and he genuinely cares for his patients. I am so thankful that he was recommended to me several years ago.

Dr. Behar always explains the condition and possible treatment options. Then gives me the ability to choose what would work best for me.

The doctor listened to me and answered all my questions. I felt, however, he was aware of the time constraints put on by the system. This is in no way a negative comment on the doctor because he was attentive and answered all my questions. I do feel, however, that there should be more time allowed for doctors to take with their patients without feeling other patients will suffer from waiting too long.

The BEST experience always. Dr. Behar explains everything to me so I understand every time I come in. He takes the time to make sure I'm doing ok during the procedures. I speak highly of him to others.
