I am very pleased with my overall care I receive from Dr Muszkat. When I see him, his whole team is with him, nurse and dietician. What I like most is Dr Muszkat sits facing me and talks directly to me, not the computer, his nurse is the one who takes the notes. I like how he asks the dietician when faced with a question about my diet as I am on TPN. Dr Muszkat is a very caring and concerned Dr with the problems I face. I know he only wants what is best for me. He treats me as a whole person and not just a patient. He takes his time with me, so I understand what he is doing and what is next on my treatment plan.


The doctors answered my questions and provided me with information and scheduled follow up care.


I felt very comfortable with the attention.


Very pleasant.


Very pleased!!
