"Doctor Trask has been caring for my father for several months. From the first moment we were introduced to him, he has been providing top-notch care to my father. He is available at all hours to answer questions or to attend to my father's medical needs, he has liaised well with other doctors who are involved in his care, and he has worked tirelessly to cure my father's ailment. On top of all this, he's a very compassionate person and he has a lot of empathy for patients. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Trask. I highly recommend him to anyone with an ENT need."
