    Absolute disaster. I would never go back to him. He is out of network and charges cash for a consultation. He literally said what he had to say and pushed us out of the office for his next appointment. the office is filled with resident doctors. I would never go back. He is not thorough on any level. I should have trusted the comments from health grades and never went back to see him.
