    Ghastly bedside manor - STAY AWAY. Saw for possible Schuermann's disease diagnosis of my back lump between 2013-2014. Directly insulted me verbally, stating my pains are from my weight and that he did not believe my symptoms. Stated nothing medically wrong with me. Insulted my wife, and went so far as to "blacklist" me from seeing other neurologists in his group - was told by his receptionist I was wasting his time. Will never go here again.
    in Uniontown, PA |
    Waited 3hr 10 minutes. Told after 2 hr wait is because Doctor is behind and you must see the doctor. Ends up, Only saw PA and no explanation why doctor wouldn't be examining. Extreme disappointment in lack of caring, Follow up care or information on post hemmorage. Very difficult to endure for 86 yr old compromised from traumatic brain injury. One that took us to room was kind.
    in Allison Park, PA |
    Since he wasn't treating my son for the broken neck, just the temporal brain fracture, he acted like we were wasting his time. After waiting an hour and half hr came into the room and made 2 statements and was out the door. No concern, no empathy, no class
