    This man was RUDE, UNCARING, doesn't listen, and thinks he knows what you want, even though you go in for something else. I was totally humiliated and felt demeaned by him. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone.

    Spent 5-10 minutes on review of my MIR ,asked does it hurt? Then said you need surgery! He was the rudest Dr I have ever seen! After surgery never talked to me! A week or so after surgery pain was over the top(7 or 8, on pain scale), after talking to office they called said I need a MIR(again)? They called back and said I have to much arthritis in my neck and can't help me (so why did he cut me?) I'm still in major pain and need a pain management Dr,the rest of my life!!!????????
