Austin, TX |
I could not have been treated better, nor faster! Exceptional care from everyone in the office! He got me in right away, listened to me carefully, answered all my questions, and was able to treat my condition right in his office, instead of sending me to a hospital. I am extremely pleased with the entire process.

I wouldn't recommend a dead raccoon that was hit on the highway to this so called joke! He was arrogant, offensive, abrasive, verbally abuse. He has one skill... ONLY 1. RUNNING his MOUTH. Refused to listen to any of the issues I'm having. Did not care to hear where I'm having gastric pain. The entire visit was insult after insult.... If you schedule an appointment with this Dr. I suggest you immediately schedule one with a proctologist to coincide your appointment. You will definitely need it.
