    HORRIBLE!! He sees you once then you only see his PA's. Takes one week to get a phone call back. He's never on call. Too big of a practice. He has NO COMPASSION at all. Doesn't like dealing with patient care whatsoever. He stands in front of you with his hands on his hips like your a bother. He has his PA deal with all issues. Extremely poor communication with the entire office staff.
