Grekin is a pleasure. He did not condescend by explaining with annoying analogies that some MDs think is their special talent for communicating with muggles. He assessed my curiosity and background and educated me with plain and useful terminology. He did not oversimplify the seeming contradictions of sunlight exposure. Do you have any idea how much that matters?

Outside of my diagnosis (I don't think anyone likes hearing bad news), his discussion of potential treatments was clear and concise. His manner was kind. I did not feel rushed. I highly recommend him & his staff.
