Obnoxious and incompetent nephrologist in my opinion. I was taken off dialysis and very ill and he refused to put me back on. I went to another doctor that hospitalized me and had to do a blood transfusion I was in such bad shape. Run from this guy!! He will kill you! He does not care about his patients and good luck getting in touch with him without an appointment one month in advance.

Run, don't walk away from this "doctor". He has a horrible, uncaring and uninterested bedside manner. I believe he really would prefer it if you would just go away and die quietly rather than bother him. He obviously became a doctor to make money, not because he actually likes people or wants to help anyone. He refuses to do the simplest of things like explain his decisions about your treatment or even offer you the chance to participate in your own care. He is horrible.

Horrible bedside manner! Arrogant, unhelpful. Brusque with patients. Doesn't explain things he says nor the decisions he makes. Has patients lined up like cows in pens and treats all like he's talking to a herd. A doctor without empathy. Yeah, just hope you never have to do dialysis in Midland or Odessa. I understand he is leaving the area. Not a moment too soon. Let's hope he's retiring. And frankly, I hope if he ever needs medical care he gets a doctor just as good as he is.
