He delegated almost everything to his Nurser practitioner. Don't listen your concern.

If I could leave no stars I would! I had the worst experience of my life with a doctor and I have been seeing doctors since I was 12 for my migraines (which was a long time ago). This doctor has no manners, no human emotion, no knowledge of anything. The only good thing of this office is the lady at the front which is very courteous. He is very rude and arrogant and you should not even go for 1 visit to this place. Save yourself money and time!

Doctor never have time to explain to their patients and his attention is poor. Receptionist never answer the phone.Makes no show fee charges even when you cancel the appointments. Never sent laboratories results or any other document to PCP. Never receive any of submitted faxes. Doctor is not available and personnel can't have options for the patients even when they are the ones making mistakes. Not recommended.

This man SHOULD NOT be practicing, he doesn't care to listen to the patients he's EXTREMELY evasive with is pompous attitude. He will schedule you and then you have to see a newly hired PA, when you insist on speaking with him they tell you he's out of the office in a meeting. I insisted on waiting for him., when he came in he was very upset and in a hurry only 5 minutes in the consultation he walked out and ignored me. The same thing happened to 2 other people I know who were referred to him

The office staff are liers. I specifically asked to make the appointment with the Doctor. They tell you that they are making an appointment to see the Doctor just to get you to make the appointment but they are scheduling the appointment with a nurse practitioners instead. When you go to the appointment and you are expecting to see the Doctor there's no doctor only a nurse. And then all the paperwork is showing that you in fact had been seeing by the actual doctor. This should not be legal!

I have Parkinson's disease. The doctor never met with me, only a PA. That encounter was less than 5 minutes in my first and third visit. In both cases, I was kept waiting over an hour in the waiting room and an hour in an exam room. The attention of the PA was minimal. My second visit was for an EEG. Again I waited an hour because the tech had not come in. The staff did not know why. The tech was irritable, and very negative. He only wanted to return to NY. UGH!

I have had generalized seizure disorder for years, an abnormal EEG, but fairly stable on my medications. This was a new doctor for me. Even with my medical records he dismissed the idea I have epilepsy, said any seizure activity is just migraine related and refused medication refills I've been taking for years, forcing cold turkey withdrawals I may still end up in Urgent Care for. I felt like I was being punished for "lying" about my illness.

Well first off, I would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone. I went in because of my severe migraines and when the PA came in; all he done was introduce himself and prescribe medicine I have been on before that was not effective. Also I was able to have forms completed for disability info without issue and no costs; and now the office charges out the yang and then I don't get what I requested and paid for.

This doctor shows not interest in seeing the patients. He is not professional and most of the staff lies in your face as if all people are fools. They charge 300.00 dollars for filling a three pages form and request cash payment only. It's a shame that the Medicare and Medicaid enlisted him as a provider. People no matter condition do not deserve to be treated this way . Also saw a staff laughing about an elderly woman. There is not respect and nither conciencie about human dignity Don't go

Was my daughters doctor for almost 2 years never did any test, made her go every month just to add and remove pills, never went to see my daughter in the hospital, not even once in over 10 times. My daughter almost died the last time. If you have epilepsy go to an epileptologist
