This man represents all that is dysfunctional and reprehensible in medicine! His dimeanor is cold, severe, and utterly lacking in emotional intelligence. I found his scientific reasoning and deduction to be shockingly inferior to the other neurologists I've worked with. I have no faith in him as a doctor whatsoever and wonder how this disturbing person obtained the position he's in. I can only recommend to go elsewhere!

Not compassionate at all!!! Says he sympathized but by tone in his voice and expression on his face he is a liar! We waited 6months to see this dr....we were referred by another Nurologist to see him. The resident dr was more compassionate then him! He did a quick reflex Check, checked eyes,throat,breathing -he said he reviewed previous records and said there was nothing he could do! Wouldn't even refer us to the correct dr who could possibly help us!!!! 6MONTHS WAIT FOR NOTHING!!!
