The Doctor was not even concerned with the issues I was sent there for. He only wanted to address the issue I was already being treated for by another doctor. I was looking for the underlying cause and he didn't want to discuss it. And when I tried to discuss he just walked out of the room. Very poor listening skills!! I will never go back or recommend him to anyone.

One of worst doctor I've ever met. He don't have minimum courtesy of listening to patient's concerns. I'm having neuropathic pain but but he don't want to listen to me. He just want to focus on my diabetics, not the immediate problem which is severe pain.
in Macomb, MI |
The staff and the reception were excellent. The doctor understood exactly what is my problem and discussed in details with me, letting me give my opinions with open-minded. He answered all my questions and finally he gave me the right medicine which worked with me from the first day. His two offices are clean and well organized. His staff specially the one that take care of you before the doctor see you are friendly & they give you the needed test; measuring blood pressure & blood sugar level.

He was dismissive. He refused to listen to any of my symptoms. I left his office and went directly to another endocrinologist a week later that was shocked at how dangerous my health issue was. How does this man still have a license? His medical staff were so incompetent they could not even take a blood pressure reading. I won't be back.
in Almont, MI |
I was sent to the doctor due to a severe vitamin D deficiency and hyperparathyroidism. He treated me with high doses of vitamin D, but failed to determine whether the hyperparathyroidism was primary or secondary in nature. I had to see another specialist at a later date to have that determination made before I could have surgery to repair my broken shoulder. The doctor was dismissive of all other concerns that I had. If I had my way he would no longer have a license.
in Port Huron, MI |
Front staff was obnoxious, Dr. was arrogant, condescending, and rude! His so called exam was diagnosing me, by looking at me and telling me I don't have the medical issue I suspected. He reluctantly did blood work and later when the results were in, he sent a brief letter confirming I did in fact have the issue he was convinced I didn't have. Even after all this, he gave no direction or treatment plan for the disease. If not for the nursing staff in the back I would have walked out.
