Mount Pleasant, TX |
Very professional, caring, and kind. Entire staff goes out of their way and provides awesome care (even when you come in with 3 children) Willing to answer all questions and provides helpful materials to read at home
in Athens, Tx |
Arrogant, horrible bed side manner, extremely unprofessional, is not interested in really assisting people with Parkinson's disease but only performing certain treatments and if you fall in that category then you MIGHT can work with this dr., but why would you want to because there are dr's who can do the same thing and be kind, professional and pleasant. This was one of the worst experiences we have ever had with a dr and we gave a go for 2 years and I have no idea why, not worth it. RUN!

Brilliant and caring. Answered all our questions and took time to explain exactly why he arrived at the diagnosis and how to treat the symptoms and discuss medication interactions.
