I would not recommend this nasty person, to my worst enemy. He was rude condescending, preoccupied, over confident and had very little interest in anything I had to say. I put of further diagnostics of my hand as I was so fearful to go back to this clinic. He knew the healing of my injury was not right, and yet chased me out of his office being loud raising his voice at me and treating me like a stepchild instead of a patient. I would never go back to this monster.

He is interested only in your $ Not welfare of his clients. He let my husband go for 18 months without a shoulder evaluation that we desperately needed and kept ignoring that my husband was telling him he was in extreme shoulder pain. he also ignored that my husband was not having feeling in a lrg part of his hand blaming it on diabetic neuropathy when tested it turned out to be severely pinched ulnar nerve in the elbow which was definitely in the range of his specialty. He simply ignored it
