he wouldn't listen to me about medication causing serious side effects. he seems to prescribe klonopin to most of his patients. p.s. why are all the appointments written with pencil in a notebook when a computer is available?

I would not recommend this man at all. He is arrogant and unpersonable. He doesn't listen to concerns and refused to take me off a medication that was causing negative side effects because he felt that I needed to be on it. He told me that therapy is pointless and helps no one. He doesn't even take a person's weight into consideration when prescribing dosage. He made hurtful comments about my diagnosis. He even failed to respond to a subpoena from a federal court regarding my medical records.

He is rude to my kid, and the receptionist does not take credit for co-pay nor gave you change when I gave her a 20 dollars bill. She asked me to go out to break that 20 bucks so i went to Valesky's to shop!

Takes phone calls and office manager is rude.
