    Dr Error may be the kindest Dr I have encountered. He was thorough and very informative. He listened intently and seemed to make sure my concerns were listened to, even though it turns out my issue is not in his specialty so he won¿t be able to actually help in my care going forward. Still a very good experience.

    Dr. Error is highly qualified, professional and easy to approach. I found him to be knowledgeable and balanced regarding my options for care. He definitely went above and beyond what many physicians offer. Never once did I sense he was short on time for hearing my concerns or answering my questions. I came away with everything I needed and much more !!!! Don¿t hesitate to make an appointment with this guy. He¿s what you would call ¿top notch¿ in every respect.

    He was super kind and explained the procedure carefully and in a way I understood. It felt like he truly cared about me as a patient, and that he wasn't rushing through it to get to the next appointment. I've been to a lot of providers but he was the absolute best, on-time, incredibly kind, respectful, and just made me feel comfortable.
