Dr. King was a true professional in his interaction with me. He asked for all the details, explained the options and procedure to help, and treated me extrmely well. I have to say that a couple of the negative reviews on here concerned me at first before I met Dr. King, but I have to say those negative reviews in no way reflect the treatment I received. He was courteous, pleasant and professional. Despite my discomfort with the issue I had and the uncomfortable procedure, what he did plainly worked! It was several stages, but each time he had me feeling better and better. Now the issue is gone. Frankly I was extremely impressed with Dr. King's knowledge and his approach. He did a superb job and helped remedy my issue very well. I would definitely suggest this provider.

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.

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.

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.
