    The office staff is rude and uncaring. Very unprofessional, the doctor seems great but needs to do something about these rude people. Their message machine states that they take a lunch at noon and was told by the staff that they would be at lunch at noon however when I came at 11 they told me they were going to break and would not help me. All I needed was to pickup my paperwork. This was very frustrating considering I live 15 miles from this facility.

    makes diagnoses without any concrete information, prior medical records from treating physicians. does not listen well; keeps repeating the same question(s) I would not recommend him to anyone. Go elsewhere found him to be somewhat of an alarmist - totally unnecessary when he doesn't have all the 'facts and figures.' Will never see him again!
