Norfolk, VA |
He has no standard for civility, or common decency for anyone or anything. He is an awful, miserable human being who does not care how he treats anyone. See anyone else in the practice but him, because the rest of the team is incredibly kind, knowledgeable, and empathetic.
Virginia Beach, VA |
After a 5 year plateau in my GFR the level dropped & there was a slight change in my creatinine level. Without seeing me in 6 years ,by a phone call he made a decision not to see me, because he read only a portion of the report sent to him . Second phone call I made. He looked and set an appt. Without offering an updated kidney diet or any info to help my kidneys. Many changes to my health that affect my kidneys have happened since then & he makes a diagnosis by phone. Worst Nephrologist ever.
