He was very short and rude to me actually rolling his eyes at me. He seriously injured me wrenching my knee beyond what it was able to absorb. I cannot walk without pain now after what he did to me. I would not recommend him.

Wait time unexpectible, behavior even worse. Does not take time to explain anything, just trying to kick you out of office fastest possible. If I schedule my appointment I expect to take that time not to be kicked out in 2 minutes.
