    Does not explain things, his manners are horrible, doesn't like patients asking questions and acts like I'm wasting his time. Can't complain because he is the owner yet the other dr schedules are booked and not his I wonder why.

    Wasn't taken seriously in my appointment because he didn't seem to think I was old enough or fit the stereotypical mold of someone with arthritis. Appointment ended in being told it was all in my head. Oddly enough bone spurs and other physical problems are actually not all in my head.

    Office staff was good no problems with any paperwork. Dr was completely rude and and talked to me like if I was uneducated and stupid. He didn't care to listen to anything I had to say, he looked at a blood panel that was sent to him and made a comment of why I was even there because he only treats patients with serious problems. Very unprofessional, rude, and I was completely disappointed because I waited over a month to be seen by him.

    I have been visiting this office for 15 years. The experience was never great to being with but over the last 5 years simple curtosey seems to elude them completely. When I called them recently to have them correct THEIR error in billing it took them over 20 minutes to even admit that their was any wrong doing after I repeatedly told them that I did not have my blood test taken in their office due to my insurance. They were incredibly rude and the receptionist hung up on me!

    I was disappointed.
    in Visalia, CA |
    Didn't take my issue's seriously. Didn't listen. Horrible Bedside manor. Walked in, sat down, and assumed all of my pain was due to old age (my pain started when I was 35!). I got a lecture because I see a pain Doctor for Chronic pain due to a back Stenosis. He blamed my pain meds for my constant fatigue. A previous sleep study ruled that out. I had zero input in my health. He didn't treat me as an equal, with knowledge he failed to have. Didn't want to see my pics/notes I brought.
