He removed a "mass" from the center of my back and the procedure went well (according to my dermatologist who referred him).

The doc has no bedside manner. He makes his patients wait forever past appt times knowing they are paying for parking & the waiting room is smaller than a home bathroom with dozens of people cramped & no extra seating. 2 hours later he sees you for 5 minutes & rushes through questions. He doesn't answer everything & barely does any check up (didn't even put on gloves bc he didn't even touch/examine patient). It's a hassle to get any documents/lab results/future appointments. Go somewhere else.

The office is tiny. There were over 10 people waiting in the room & hallway because there was only 5 seats & no standing room in the cramped office. Clerks spoke mostly only in Spanish. I don't look it, but I can understand some & I was affronted at how they were judging the patients--moving Hispanic names up the list while making the only black & white person there wait longer. They overbook patients with multiple coming in for the same timeslot & all waiting over an hour. Unpleasant visit.
