Do not use this doctor. He is rude, inconsiderate and has no bed side manner at all. He delivers news in an arrogant way and has no consideration for his patient's feelings. The office staff is very nice.

This doctor had no care in the world. He never checked me out and was very sarcastic thinking he knew all there was to know by looking at paperwork.. I will never refer anyone to this doctor. He never took his time with me only wanted to fill a prescription.

My wife had surgery for varicose veins. His bed side manner was terrible. Full of himself. To make matters worse, the simple procedure that should have fixed her problem was unsucessful and she will undergo the procedure again.
