I wish I could give zero stars. He is arrogant, uninterested, and uncaring. After a frustrating and painful first visit, he put lies in my medical file that directly contradicted our conversation. His office said they would file a letter I wrote to refute him in my file, then sat on it for six weeks trying to make it go away. The staff are rude, lie, and uninterested in doing their job. He's simply a bad doctor and terrible person. Go anywhere else.

This surgeon may be a good doctor, but he has no bedside manner. After 2 major surgeries, I felt like I was abandoned and on my own. He didn't listen when I told him about some unusual pain I was having which turned out to be something serious, and required an additional 4 days in the hospital. His only concern at the time was that he couldn't write me any prescription for pain meds (I didn't ask for them) because the pharmacy might get on his case. What?!?
