Dr. Reid is very personable. He was kind to me and my husband who attended my pre-op appointment with me so that we could make certain that we had all questions and concerns answered. He listened to not only me, but my husband too. He treated my husband with as much respect as he would with his patients. Dr. Reid explained everything in depth including the 2 different options I had for surgery. He said that I could make a decision on which option I wanted either that day, or the day of the surgery. He went on to say that even if I made a decision that day, I could change my mind on the day of the surgery with no problem, He never rushed us with our questions or concerns and made us feel as if we were the only appointment of the day.
