We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you. You were started on antibiotics with recommendation for to return for surgery of the lesion, which, at that time was not yet ready, hence you were only seen briefly. You were NOT charged for that visit. Compounding pharms provide mixture of creams for arthritis pain instead of dangerous pain meds. Pharma reps provide much needed samples of expensive meds for indigent and patients who can't afford their medications.

I will never go back. Met him once Blacked out while driving and never saw him. Went to the office, never saw him. Looking for new doctor. Very polite but that's it. Get passed on to someone else Suzanne

Very unorginized. Can not ever get anyone to actually answer the phone and when you finally get someone the office staff is very rude and hang up on you. One visit was enough. Would not recommend to anyone.
