This Doctor is one of the worst I’ve EVER BEEN TO. Don’t question any of his office “girls” or he will scold at you and tell you they are “your best friends” and demand that you go wish them happy holidays!!! This guy has an ego that is beyond his capabilities. He’s a bariatric surgeon who treats you like everyone else does.....just a fat person! Yes, this actually happened to me. I left his office NEVER to return.......very suspicious how he is with his office staff.....hmmmm.
