I actually had a motorcycle accident in the 1990s, probably 1993. And I cracked a tooth in my bottom part of my tooth set. And there was a recurring infection that was going on for 10 and 12 years. After that, it was diagnosed that the tooth was split in half and it stayed there in that condition for 12, 13 years before I had to do a root canal and they had to extract it out. I was very comfortable with his knowledge. I mean, like, he explained to me very, very well that what the procedure is and what he is going to do. He took his time and I think the compassion, I saw the empathy in him and I think that I felt very comfortable. It was definitely life-changing when the doctors can actually tell the patients about what's going on and make them feel important that they need to know that what's going on onto their . . . I think that that is a sense of kind of respect that they give to the patients. That's like, okay, all right. Rather than, "You just stay there, do not know anything. I'm doing . . . I'm the best whatsoever." Rather than that, telling the patient that what's going to do, what's the advancement in the field, I think that's a very unique thing and a very unique way to deal with the patients. I highly, highly recommended him in that sense.
