    My only regret is that he is reducing his practice

    It was excellent, everything was okay. It's my last visit. Thank you very much.

    I have been going to Dr. Kaul for many years. He's the best I've ever known and I'm 92 years old. So I've known quite a few. As a matter of fact, I never had a doctor at OHSU that I have not liked. Thank you.
