Outstanding! He is absolutely the best primary doctor I’ve ever had. He spends time with you and truly gets to know you. He is interested in the whole person, from head to toe, patient, thorough, kind and yet firm when he needs to be.

He treated my aunt terribly. Very disrespectful man. There is no reason for a profesional like him to make jokes about a patient’s pain. Don’t work in the medical field if this is the attitude you are going to have. Do not recommend. He should be a last option when looking for an orthopedic doctor.

I've seen two doctors since seeing this quack. This shmuck only wants to do surgery for the bucks. If otherwise you're wasting his time. Hi see a real doctor. You're just an investment to him. Seek help from so many others. You won't regret it.
