good

4/19/2016

Dr. Sullivan has a very calming demeanor. As my surgery date approaches I feel very assured that he will provide very level headed care. I know that my medical situation will require higher than average skill and I find him very worthy of my trust. I am normally skeptical of physicians and find many of them to be pompous. This is not the case at all here. When my regular provider tried to refer me to another group for surgery, I did my homework and specifically asked for this group. Please reward Dr. Sullivan and do whatever it takes to keep him at this hospital and in the eyes of as many residents as possible.
