“Between my husband and I, we have seen Dr. Paul for ten years. We have had nothing but a positive experience with this provider. Hands down, he is a skilled, personable, and accommodating physician/surgeon. I have never had a doctor spend more time explaining procedures, outcomes, etc.— while being so genuinely friendly. Five stars in every way!”
