He's an excellent Doctor!!!!

Reviewed on Dec 8, 2020

I like this doctor and it seems, at least for the moment, that the issue is resolved but he seemed to be in a rush. I understand that this is a minor issue for him and most likely sees it all the time but he needs to remember that while it's second nature to him it's not to us. I'm not the type to need my hand held and like short, sweet and to the point but not everyone is the same and could see where it would be an issue for someone who isn't like that. The injection seems to be helping for now so we'll see if it did the trick when some time passes since I had the same result last time. It helped until it didn't.
