I came in because I lost my voice. And in the process he found my thyroid cancer. He scheduled a surgery for me for my cancer, which he alone found. I should mention that other doctors did not find my cancer after all these years. He did all this very quickly. He is also very detailed in how he conducts his work. His staff always called me after the results of a test came in. He recommended other doctors to me when I needed it as well. I've never had surgery before so this is a new process for me. But he made everything easy. I didn't have to worry, just show up and get my medications. He was also pretty friendly to me considering I'm not exactly a ray of sunshine. Also, his staff is courteous which is something I value from a doctor's office. Many doctors have talent but not all doctors have courteous staff.
