Had first visit with him. I found him very knowledgeable about MS. His staff was excellent. He was easy to talk to and had a sense of humor which I like. He ordered an MRI and I go back for the results soon. I have already recommended him to someone.

He found I have a pituitary tumor secreting prolactin, I'm thankful the doctor was so thorough. I would have much rather had negative scans but this one can be treated medically so it seems I lucked out.

I'd give a zero, but it's not an option. X-rays, MRI, MRA, and waiting an entire day for him to walk in and say it was a migraine due to arthritis. Never did he say, where he seen arthritis....

Waited for an hour in room and didn't have time to go over tests he had run on me. Instead he wanted to run more tests. Extremely disappointed with this doctor. I would never recommend him to anybody.
