Misdiagnosed and lied to me about misdiagnosis. Cares more about posting how great he is on FB than on how great he is to patients. While seeing another doctor for trauma of lifetime disability caused by the misdiagnosis she saw him post 10 times on FB during the 30 minutes I was there.

From my experience, one could not hope to find a nicer, more attentive, knowledgeable, caring, personable and considerate doctor, support professionals, staff, and office environment. Also noteworthy is that his referrals are of the same caliber.

He saw me for less than 5 minutes while he made sure he was posting articles to his Facebook page! Would not recommend him or ever step foot in his office again. He only cares about getting paid an glorifying his name.
