He misdiagnosed my condition. They did not return my phone calls or messages regarding medications. My previous reviews were deleted. He “guessed,” at what was wrong with me, and guessed wrong. He failed to order the appropriate diagnostic testing & misread test results. This delayed finding the correct diagnosis with another doctor and made my condition worse. He rushes people through and is not thorough.

This doctor did not listen to me and he disregarded my concerns. He spends less than 3 minutes in the room. His secretary is rude and in a rush and his assistants do not return calls. Seeing him was a complete waste of my time. It’s better to tell patients up front if you are not interested in treating them so they can find a new doctor. If you have anything out of the ordinary, do NOT go to the doctor. Also, his secretary needs to make sure she hangs up the phone before she discusses patients.

I was worried because my previous doctor retired, and its difficult to see a new doctor. Dr.A was genuinely interested in figuring out my health problems and helping me. Felt like I was important and involved in my plan of care and decisions. I highly recommend him.

A five star doctor. He saved my mother. He spends time discussing what's going on and involves you in the decision making process. I absolutely recommend him.

Only wants to do procedures and give meds. Does not listen and overbooks patients. Every time my mother goes to see him, he has two or three other patients to see at the same time. He does not listen to her. He is NEVER on time and we have left his office more times than we have seen him.
