      Worst office and bedside manner of 100's of physicians I have seen. His nurse, however, is one of the finest individuals you will find. She explains everything in detail and stands ready to assist in a very kind manner. I will NEVER again see this doctor again. He, and his operating staff, treat patients much like a superior officer treats the lowest ranked soldier. Once in the operating room, the patient is jerked into various positions without being warned or asked to do so voluntarily.

      I really like this Dr. He is pleasant; responsive; knowledgeable; and quick. I was in and out in less than 40 minutes.
