Would not recommend this Dr at all. He is not a caring or compassionate Dr and his nurse isn’t either. My medical questions have not been answered correctly at all! I was diagnosed with colon cancer and haven’t received any concern from this Dr. I ask questions and his nurses can’t even answer them. I’ve never gotten a personal phone call from him either. Will never be seen again by him.

I will never see him again or refer anybody to him. Not once did he ever call with results or try and figure out what was causing my issues. All I got from him were medical bills with no diagnosis. I didn't feel like I mattered to him as patient and felt very rushed the one time I saw him. If I could give him zero stars I would.
