"I must say that I am very impressed by Dr. Neal's skills. He took the time to explain procedures and was very, very, very patient with me. I asked several questions and he proved to be knowledgeable as well as he showed me diagrams and explained the different products. If anyone can deal with me and my questions, I must give them all stars because I am a very tough person who is inquisitive. The staff was very friendly and understanding. They made me feel very comfortable. Overall, my experience was great! I like when doctors take the time to answer my questions."
