    What can I say? I only have positive things to say! Took the time to explain everything in detail so that I knew what was happening and what to expect, answered my questions and asked me if I had any more, always kind and helpful, during the process he tried to take my mind of it so that I could feel better and he also made a few jokes to break my tension. Excellent doctor! I am very happy I had the procedure with him. A million thank you's are not enough!
