Rude. Poor doctor - patient relationship. Doesn’t leave his problems at the door. Brings them in to the room and takes them out on you.

Best doctor I have ever seen. Compassion, knowledge base, expertise, experience, bed-side manner, all unmatched. I would recommend him to any family member or friend.

Doctor dismissed my symptoms. Had me do a Sleep study when sleep was never a concern. Doctor did not coordinate care with my other docs. I will never go back.

Poor experience, very abrupt and looked at his watch 2 times in 30 minutes. Very sarcastic and opinionated. Made some negative remarks about my previous rheumatologist that left the practice, unprofessional. I decided to change practices.
