Dr. King is beyond amazing. He has an ability to establish a rapport with a patient, convey genuine care and concern, listen attentively, provide great information, and provide help - all with a smile and a sense of humor. I could have had an earlier appointment with a different provider, but there wasn't any way I was going to see someone other than Dr. King, even if it meant being in a lot of pain for a few more weeks. He is THAT worth it! He exemplifies everything that a care provider should be and I'm so glad he's available to help.
