He was very thorough and explained in an easy to understand manner. He asked questions which helped him better understand what was going on with me. He also had a 4th year medical student with him and from what I could tell, he was a preceptor that was able to teach, explain, and set a positive example.

The doctor was very sensitive to my needs and questions and was even willing to give advice about more experimental treatment (stem cell therapy) which is not particularly well researched in the literature and is not being used at Froedtert. All of my questions and concerns were answered.
