Patient Comments (6)

Beyond awful!!! I couldn't walk for two weeks due to severe swelling. He sent me to physical therapy and did not do anything about me getting an MRI. PT recommended that I do the MRI he still didn't do anything. Second time I went back he stretched out my knee so bad it was so painful. Worst doctor...more

The most arrogant Unprofessional doctor there is. He doesnt care about patients, he doesn't care if you're in pain, he is into himself and only cares about money. Please your self the time and do not go to this doctor.

Very unprofessional, poor bed side manners, I believe he's lost his compassion as a doctor and only in his profession for the $$$. Has no compassion for new clients that are really in severe pain! I do not recommend him to noone!

One of the worst if not the worst Doctor I've ever been to. Never knows what to do or give the patient something they need. I needed an mri and had to wait aleast two months to get him considering the idea of one.
