Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. King "I first started practicing medicine as a flight surgeon in the Air Force, which taught me to bring a sense of honor and responsibility to my craft. It's been almost 25 years since I moved to Annapolis and began practicing at DDA, and I feel blessed that my through my work, I have a very real connection to the local community. I've had patients refer their friends and family to me, which is the greatest compliment they can give me. My approach is simple - treat patients to the best of my ability."

Do not go to see this doctor if you expect to be treated with care and respect. He is aggravated by simple questions and seems offended by them. He is rude and belittling. You will leave feeling worse than when you went in. Retire already !!!
Huntingtown MD |
Dr. King shouldn't be practicing. Yelled very bad news to me about my husbands results after doing a colonoscopy. My husband was in excruciating pain when the procedure was done and Dr King made him leave on foot soon after procedure was done. I had to get him over to the hospital myself and they admitted him. My husband has now passed away. Retire Dr King. Go play golf.

Dr. King was wonderful to me. I had to be seen that day and was fit into his schedule. Finally after 20 years I found a doctor that was able to help me. I will always be grateful! Thank you!

I have been a patient of Dr King's for many years and am taking my father to him tomorrow. Amazing doctor, great bedside manor, very confident in his care!

This was the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. All I got out of him was that he was a highly skilled doctor whose time is precious and if he were to waste his time trying to figure out what my health issue was, he would be neglecting his patients. So he announced he would walk me to the desk and reschedule me with another doctor, at this point my husband interrupted the 'doctor' and asked me if I was willing to reschedule, Hardy har har, I'd rather set my hair on fire

horrible experience. I have watched him be rude to the elderly patients. And to myself. I wanted to switch to Dr Epstein in the same practice but the rude front desk receptionist would not let me. Don't go to this practice.

I wish I had seen another doctor. He was so rude to me, it brought me to tears. The way he spoke to me was very unessecary. Will never return!
Very unprofessional. I have work in the medical field for the past 15 years and have never experienced a physician as rude an uncaring of my teenage daughter. I would never recommend him to anyone I cared about. His nurse also very rude! She talked to me as if I didn't have any intelligence at all.
