Excellent surgical skill. No infections and small incisions which healed quickly. Saved my vision. Aftercare not so great would not see me before I was put under and would not come see me in the NS icu despite my numerous requests. Puts other info in my chart that is not my info, so no the greatest listener. I think he could learn from his patients if he listened a little bit. Better research would come if he just listened to his patients rather than referring to stats. Would use again.

It has been three days since I had brain surgery and still have not seen my doctor or been told what is going on. Worst doctor for ethics and communication I have ever had.

Love this man, He has save the sight/life of my son. Has not given up on his issues. Very knowledgeable. Does his research, before any surgeries are performed. Also gives the patient and or their families all info so they can do their own research. Also will sit down with all involved and answer any and all questions. He is so willing to work with the patients and their families for the best outcome. GREAT Man and Doctor!!!
