Dr. Behar provided quality care showed interest regarding my concerns for my issue, attentive professional but also made me feel very much as ease. Excellent bedside manner. I felt I was attended to like I had seen him before his explanation of my health issue concerns was address with compassion. And even a little humor. Very satisfied with my visit.

The recommendation is fair because of the lack of availability. Otherwise, Dr. Behar was excellent in explaining the situation and recommending treatment.

He knew my history of feeling like I would pass out during the procedure and made sure to tell the staff to put ice packs on my neck. He made sure I felt safe the entire process
