Dr May is always Friendly and courteous, and shows an unusual amount of care for his patients. I couldn't ask for any better.

1/26/2015

Dr. May is a "top notch" professional.

1/25/2015

I can't say enough good things about Dr May. He restored my faith in medicine. Within 2 minutes of my describing my list of symptoms he identified my health problem. I had been to my GP who, because he couldn't help me, recommended a specialist. That specialist, after 2 visits told me I was "SOL". Returning to my GP I asked for someone else and that is when he recommended Wake Forest where I saw Dr May. May was extremely familiar with my condition and explained it in detail providing me with a print-out of links where I could research further. His initial recommendation is a treatment that doesn't even require a prescription. I am extremely impressed and so far his treatment seems to be working.
