    Showed up for a follow up appt 3 times and all 3 he was in surgery and running several hours late. I understand things come up but from a customer service perspective it would be nice if someone could call me to tell me he was running late. I have a busy job as well and wasting half my day for nothing is very frustrating. He might be a great surgeon but from a customer service perspective I think his office dropped the ball. Maybe they will reimburse me for my lost time at work and gas !

    He is the absolute worst Dr. I have ever met in my life. If you are a "self-pay" patient get ready to be treated like a piece of crap. And his nurse is just as bad. VERY VERY VERY bad manners. Worst experience of my life . . . .

    I would not recommend this Dr.to anyone.He told me the lump I have was a muscle. He said if I would feel better he would send me for an MRI. I went the next day. It took him a week and a half to let me know there wasn't any thing showing on my MRI. I had the report sent to my primary care Dr.They called me back that day and told me 2 things came up on the report I have a cyst and it has to be removed. The other is I am severely constipated SHAME ON YOU
