My husband had a problem keeping food down. All appropriate tests were given by King with no result for bout 2 years. Suggested he do alphagal test(tick bite results in can't eat red meat) and he would not give test. Said not his dept. See primary care which he did and that's the problem. After wasting 2 to 3 years on King. And test stress.

The billing office, one of the receptionist, and the Dr are all RUDE. I called tui get help with a bill and she cut me off twice not allowing me to talk. The dr himself was short with me and told me that my problem was I was over weight. I lost 30lbs and still have the SAME ISSUES. He rushes through the visits and I want someone that will take the time to listen to the patient and have better bed side manners. People come to you for help not to br pushed away.

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 !!!

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!

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.
