Inconsiderate. No communication to family about status especially husbands and wives....not worth his time. Never answers a question with an intelligent response. Actually, never answers a question period. Obviously gives the impression that patients are worth only a moment of his precious time. Not a chance would I recommend him for any reason.

He seems very smart but he is so busy and out of town so much can never get any help. The office drops the ball on procedures that need to be done! I feel he could care less and his staff does not call back when calling for help! This is a very difficult time and getting proper medicines and procedures is life threatening. It is tough to fight every step of the way when you do not feel well! It is really too bad he is a lot of talk but no follow thru!
