10+ If I could give a higher score than 10, I would. Dr. Ketchum was the best doctor I've seen in a very long time. He is very caring and actually listened to what I had to say. I didn't feel rushed unlike most of the other doctors I see. I wish, I could see Dr. Ketchum for ALL of my medical needs! (Even his resident was a pleasure to talk to!)
