Dr. French was welcoming, pleasant and very optimistic about providing the results I needed. His staff was also very respectful and readily available to provide any information needed. I felt very comfortable in Dr. French’s care. After my surgery, Dr. French made sure to check on me several times till my hospital stay was over. He made me feel like a part of his family rather than a patient. My results were more than I ever expected. Dr. French is a real artist and I am glad I found him.
