Was in FL when the accident happened. Was in contact via text with this doctor for several days until we could return home due to a pet being in urgent care in hospital. Doc expressed concerns for pet and my wellbeing. It was unbelievably awesome!!! He is not only an excellent surgeon, but a wonderful human being. I am very fortunate to have him caring for me!!
