October 18, 2020
Dr. Reid and his staff are top-notch. in addition to giving information, he is pleasant and encouraging.
October 09, 2020
Dr Reids explanations were thorough and clear but he also repeatedly encouraged any questions.
October 05, 2020
It would improve the post surgery visit if the doctor, after the exam, and indication of his statement about a next treatment/referral step, would simply ask "do you have any comments or questions or concerns you would like to express to me?" The visit felt rushed, impersonal. More explanation of what, why that treated me as intelligent. That said, communication about surgical result itself was clear. Prior 2 meetings with doctor provided clear information & question time satisfaction.
September 23, 2020
Dr. Reid has an incredibly kind demeanor. He explained the results of my procedure in a way that I could understand with such kindness. I would say that I was very surprised at the size of the tissue he removed when I read it in my chart. I did not get the impression in my first visit with him that so much tissue would be removed or characterized as it was. Either way, Dr. Reid is probably the best doctor I have ever had for both skills and gentleness in communication.
September 11, 2020
Dr. Reid understood how terrified I was about my diagnosis. He was straightforward about my options and explained everything in a way so I could make the best decision for me. My surgery results were so much better than I expected.
July 30, 2020
Dr.Reid is pleasant, respectful, and caring. I appreciate how he listen to my concern and shows empathy. I feel comfortable knowing my health is in good hands with Dr. Reid!

June 02, 2020
Dr. Reid is an outstanding and caring professional man.
April 09, 2020
Answer my questions clearly to ease any anxiety that I may have
April 05, 2020
Doctor came into the waiting room, took a look at my incisions, and was in and out in about 2 minutes flat. Talked more with assistant...
February 13, 2020
At first it was hard to understand Dr Reid because it he talked fast but after listening I could follow along with him. I liked when he drew on paper where the cancer was & the reason for the procedure he would do.
February 07, 2020
Dr. Reid is phenomenal!
