Very rushed visit . I didn’t spend more than 10 minutes in there. He doesn’t listen to you at all. Asks questions & barely lets you answer them. I was still having trouble with my breathing , he told me there was nothing else he could do for me. 2 pulmonologists later , turns out I have Eosinophilc asthma . He was no help at all. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM!

Last visit - took little time to ask patient questions or patient concerns - check patients. Was in waiting room about 10 min. And in exam room with Dr. About 5 mins. Don't think that is enough time with patient for $125.
