    Not a "hands-on" Dr. He Reminds me More of a "Lazy Traffic Cop" in the sense of directing your problems elsewhere away from his responsibility and into the abyss as long as He accepts your insurance before your sent into the lost cause lane. That, and Pharmaceuticals don't cure everything.-I ended up with a "Super Bug" due to an over prescribed Antibiotic instead of actually Finding out as why I was getting sick. -Avoid this Guy like the Plague.
