Expect to wait at least 30 minutes past your appointment time in the waiting area. Once inside an exam room, you'll wait an additional 20 minutes. Staff is not friendly nor informative.

He is by far the most brilliant and entertaing doctor I've ever had the pleasure to see. He is astute and perscipacious. He has instinct! Knows what questions to ask and is as strait forward as I've ever experienced. Furthermore he has an underlying compassion which he unknowingly tries to hide. I can't say enough good things about this man. His medical insight is really astonishing.
