Dr. Highland has been and still is very helpful to me. He listens to me, evaluate, suggest, and he explains to me what is happening during my virtual appointment after listening to me. He's given me great options and they work. Thanks so very much

He has been wonderful. I have really enjoyed working with him, and he is very respectful. He is straight to the point, and very professional.
