Dr. May takes his time, is friendly, and down to earth. It's hard to find good doctors and I feel lucky to have him as my doctor.

Definately a great experience with Dr May. The group I went to in So Cal was a distance from me and you could only see the surgeon once a year under Kaiser as it was a contracted group. Dr May is a very nice young surgeon with a very nice bedside manner.
