Kingsland, GA |
He treats most of my family. Dr Shark and Laura have given me the only relief I’ve found in over 10 years. If he wasn’t such a great Dr I don’t think I could tolerate the way his front desk employees treat the patients.They rudely recite any rule they can to say no and rarely even look up. They treat patients as burdens to be quickly dismissed. Zero compassion or empathy. Even with treatment like that, it’s worth waiting once you get called back. I doubt he realizes this happens or he’d fix it.

He was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. He was very thorough in his exam and testing. I have also heard great things from other people I know about him. All the staff was also very nice and helpful.

Very pleasant and caring Dr
Brunswick, GA |
Very friendly and listens well. Waiting time in his office needs improving. Almost a 2 hour wait is horrible. It is sometimes very hard to get anyone to answer the phone.Needs to make sure patient understands when kidneys are getting worse and making sure patients understand why kidneys, work together to improve them if they can be. He asked me did I have any questions but I, and maybe other patients, don't know what to ask.
