      Poor bedside manner. Rude. He yelled at me for correcting his incorrect recounting of my symptoms. Then he refused to examine my knee and my back even though they are in pain, because the pain at those sites did not fit into the pattern of information about the primary condition that I came in for. I guess he only allows a patient to have one malady. Overall his taking of history was sterile and I felt as if he did not care much about me at all.

      The office was very cold and unfriendly. i unfortunately had been forced to see this doctor twice as it is office policy before they will switch you to another competent empathetic individual. The 1st visit they could care less that my blood pressure was 150/110, as where other doctors wouldnt even see me at that point. My PDR originally sent me here for in hopes for relief from pain and answers but all i received in return was nothings wrong and its probably just fibromyalgia .Noanswers..nothin

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
