I had him as an ob/gyn for my last baby and loved him. I had always had women doctors before for that kind of thing. I felt so comfortable with him that I was able to ask more personal questions than with my other ob/gyns. he would tell me exactly what he was doing during the exams which helped me relax. I think the best hing about him was that he remembered me each time I came to visit. I wasn't just another patient. they take the time to get to know you when you go to meritcare.
