Dr. S. Was amazing. He was always a call away after surgury, never made me feel like I was just another chart. He is very friendly, easy to understand. And make sure you understand before he leaves the room.

I had a 5-10 minutes first appointment with this provider for him to tell me to eat less than 500 calories a day then I got a bill. $550 for the doctor and 150 for the “facility fee”. Meaning that since he was working out of a hospital clinic that was not his I have to pay both the provider and the hospital that his clinic is at. To me that is ridiculous and not affordable. If I could score less than one star I would. This provider did not even exam me, or ask questions
