He's the first doctor who is actualy helping me. He answers every question in full explanation as well as knowing which tests should be done to figure things out. He also almost immediately answers your questions in the virtual visit which makes me believe he is very knowledgeable which is a huge deal to me since many doctors have pushed me off because they didn't understand mast cell diseases and thought I was basically making it up.
