He has been my doctor for many years. my answers to these questions are very similar all the time. i look to him when i have to get assist for something he does nothandle ,he advises me to call other departments to handle the situation i may have and he keeps tabs on what is going on. i had several problems this year and whenI went to see him we talked about them and he advised me on certain things to do for relief which I followed and it helped immensely.we cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time because he understands what i am saying and i understand him. he is patient with me and fields any questions i have to make it clear to me. the end
