Had the worst experience. He yelled at me while I was trying to explain my symptoms. He lost his temper and became very rude Poor interpersonal skills Wouldn’t recommend him at all

Told a friend to stay away from the quackery of this doctor. He prescribed 30 Percocet 10 pills to my daughter, when she asked for only 10 to get her to her next appnt. He did this knowing she had Xanax from another doctor. He made her promise she would not combine them. Seriously? Who is the...more

A good doctor; he knows his business but his interpersonal skills need remmediation. He lets his anger show during exams if he is inconvenienced in any way. Bedside manner is dependent on his personal feelings.
