Dr was fine but very stingy with refills for simple BP meds. Raised self pay from $90 to $165. I can never afford to go back. Took blood but I never heard back what the results were since Jan. I didn't call to check either as phone staff not that helpful.

He is an outstanding Physician. He listens to patients and carefully makes a decision. He is very thorough in solving a problem and will reverse judgement if it is in the patient's best interest. I was there when his judgement was better than a Specialist who was anxious to do surgery.
