In my experience as a health care provider myself I found this doctor has the compassion of a King cobra. it takes over an hour to fill out his pages and pages of forms. As a new patient in real pain I felt I was being interrogated and then with a snap judgment I was thrown out the door . If you want a caring compassionate physician to treat your pain forget about this man . The only kindness I received was not being billed for the office visit. He didn't even check my urine analasis .

This is/was the Dr who performed my mom's back surgery, 10/5/16. She's been in severe pain since. It's so bad she can't get up and use the bathroom, or do every day things. At follow up 11/10, nurse says Dr doesn't want to speak with mom, explaining issue w/ lawyer and financial situations, even though LOP in place. Mom left because of Dr refusal to see her. Receptionist calls and states mom is discharged for leaving. Dr continues to prescribe pain meds but will not see mom. I am sickened by Dr
