Horrible patient care! Disrespectful. Made appt to this office from the VA. Arrived and waited over an hour for an EEG only to get meet with a rude doctor asking ( why are you here?!” Told to schedule to come back for the EEG ( when I was there for the EEG). Made next appt today. Waited for the EEG and was told after waiting it would be another 2 hours or I could reschedule again!! Very disappointed in the treatment of Veterans and all patients in this office!!!

A waste of time. Dr. Came into room - did not introduce himself. His comment was - what are you here for? Never made eye contact, sat at computer, typing and looking down. Examination was minimal. He referred us back to family doctor for a routine test. I felt that he was very unprofessional and rude. Terrible beside manner.

I waited two hours after my appointment to be seen. He walked in the room with a “Hi” and sat down and got on the computer after several mins he asked “ok why are you here” he checked a text in the appointment as well when I told him what I believe was the cause of my migraines he cut me off by saying “believe what you want it’s not true”. He’s rude. NO BEDSIDE MANNER. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.

After a 3 hour drive, then had to sit on the floor with my kids in the waiting room, waited almost 2 hours to be seen. He was rude, wouldn't explain anything. Told me to Google it. Then when I asked about another diagnosis he turned and looked dead at me and said 'I told you to Google it!' Very mean. He was seeing my 2 children ages 3 & 8. He was rude to my children and myself. I wouldn't recommend him at all. This was our first and last visit!

This was the worst experience I've ever been thru. The nurse an staff are very rude. The dr. Treats you like trash unable to understand and after the 5th time of saying excuse me he flys into a fit. They will suck insurance dry. I'll never go back or would never refer anyone. Bad practice

This was one of the worst doctors visits we have ever had. We had to travel 3.5 hrs for this appt and he has the worst bedside manner. It has been a struggle to find a good physician for my husband since he has been out of the army. He did not listen to us as patients and was at the least concerned with truly helping us find answers to his constant pain. The area where he practices lacks cleanliness and does not make patients feel comfortable at all. Not a good experience at all.
