    He is the worst doctor I have ever visited. After a 2 hour wait time, he barely spends 5 minutes time to talk to you and hear you. No matter if I still have questions, he's already walking out the door even without saying good bye! He misdiagnosed me for Tendinitis and had a surgery on my hand. He has stated that I have reached the maximum medical treatment and after 3 months I am still dealing with the same issues as I had before. He knows nothing about work ethics!
