5 Star Patient Rating
Dr. Davenport has one of those rare qualities that inspire confidence and reassurance just by his gentle manner and persona. I was very fortunate to have been directed to him for my surgery. For me, Dr. Davenport was a blessing, and when upon reading his bio, l learned that he gives freely of his expertise to the less fortunate in third world countries, I felt twice blessed for having met him.
