Incredibly Helpful!

We didn’t think Dr. A could get any better, and then he creates this amazing app! Every doctors office needs this, without a doubt. It was so helpful while my dad was in surgery to know where they were in his process, and how things were going. This app is beyond genius! Way to go Dr. A!
