Treated very poorly. No communication from him after an emergency room visit and only received the follow up appointment and testing after multiple calls to his office. He probably should not be accepting new patients as he can't treat the ones he already has.

Horrible experience, never kept me in the loop as to what was going on. Refused to change any of my medications even though they weren't working. Also, he disclosed information to someone that wasn't supposed to know. Worst Doctor of all time
