I needed a gastro doctor, found him on my insurance company's website and was able to get a same day appointment, so that was a positive. The only one, however. I found him to be somewhat condescending, hurried and not particularly thorough. I will be looking for another doctor

This man is the most caring, compassionate doctor I have ever known of. He has treated my mother for several years as if she was his own and I can never ever thank him enough........Elisa daughter of Barbara Cagen.

First visit he was very friendly, spent sufficient time with me, answered all my questions. Then, 2nd visit, he actually got mad at me for asking questions about my condition, , belittling me. I also do not trust his medical judgment. Do not waste your time with a doc who does not respect his patients! Do not waste your time with a doc who uses poor medical judgment!

If you want to get belittled and feel like just a number then he is the best doctor. He is rude and do not like any questions asked. He doesn't remember much his patients, he's with you no more then 10mins & I do not trust his judgment.

I consider him as a dear friend I have been going to him for 16 16 years .he found me to have HEP C he got me on treatment 15 years ago without any cost to me it was expensive to say the least . It also did not work .THEN WHEN THE HARVONI came out with a $96000 dollar price tag on it he and his staff did the searching so i can get it and i am now CURED .they took the time and effort to find resources to help pay for this medication and it took alot of work on their behalf.10 STARS!!!!!!
