Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

At one time he was practicing at Cleveland Clinic but it does not seem that relationship exists any longer. My elder father fell into his hands without my awareness when a prior excellent MD moved to the main campus. At one point my father was in excruciating pain and not sleeping at all, yet an appt was not able to be scheduled soon. We wound up using the Hillcrest bldg to get in sooner and dad was treated so horribly and roughly it was traumatic for him, in comparison to the same with the other MD he'd had. I reported the episode to the higher ups and I insisted dad switch back and I would drive him to the main campus.

Do not use this doctor. He is petty and untruthful if you have an issue with him. Did not take the time to even be familiar with my medical history. When confronted about it, he cut off my care immediately and wrote things in my file that were completely untrue.
