Dr. King was thorough in his analysis of past medical records. He provided hope for my condition and a roadmap that considers many options, should one path not be successful. He also gave me a referral to a colleague who can provide treatment closer to my current location. I am looking forward to seeing how that works out, as I was assured he has similar treatment knowledge and philosophies. Dr. King gave me a sufficient amount of time to discuss my concerns and the facts. Should I need surgery in the future, I may call upon him, even though there is a bit of a distance. His expertise paired with the Cleveland Clinic is highly desirable.
