I feel lucky I can develop a rapport with patients over the years. I see them once or twice a year and get to know them over time, which helps me provide better care if problems arise.

The staff and Dr. H are always attentive, open to questions, and very professional. Great experience. It seems to matter to them that the patient is satisfied with their visit and result. I would recommend Dr. H to anyone.
