I would never recommend this Dr. I went in w/ three problems, told I had to have hearing test since I was new. Dr had to take wax from ear before test so I mentioned my problems. After the test he told me the findings then said we were all done and I could leave, while waiting at the door. I was stunned, not knowing what to do! If he can't care enough for a patient, I did not want him as my MD, Told insurance so he couldn't charge for new patient exam when he did nothing. Very uncaring MD.
