Dr Behar was okay...
No Rating Given
Dr. Behar is top tier. He takes the time to listen, is very thorough, and shows care every step of the way. He's professional and very approachable. He asks about my family and my health in general, remembers that I play tennis and always asks about that too. Just a genuinely caring person and great doctor. I also appreciate his honesty when it comes to treatment - never pushy, will share pros and cons, just wants the best for his patients.
