Arrived at his office at 9:50 for a 10:00 apointment, filled out a ton of paperwork, submitted a urine sample (required), and waited until 11:15 - and still had not seen the doctor. Either i was too impatient, or the doctor was too busy, too disorganized to see me. So I left. Do NOT see this doctor...Read More

DON'T GO!!! The only thing he pushes is ESI or injections (of course that's where the money is for him) - not helpful in any way - condescending and humiliating - will not allow anyone other than the patient in the room. A complete disgrace. I wish I could put negative stars.

I found him to be arrogant, rude, condescending in his manner when speaking to a patient. His office is cold and uncomfortable. The office where his staffs takes you in seems to be a storage room with a chair and one of the secretaries comes in with a lap top to further assess your personal prior...Read More
