Patient Comments (7)

Very underwhelming, does not listen to concerns or ask about concerns. Doesn't ask about problems or concerns. Primary focus of this doctor is booking g more appointments and referring you to other doctors.

I love him! He doesn't try putting me on a bunch of meds. He always listens to me and actually cares. I hope he outlives me!
