I have NEVER been treated so rudely by a doctor. He did not want to discuss any issues I was having. He basically wants to refill the prescription you are on and be in and out of the room in 5 minutes. When I tried discussing further what he didnt want to hear, he just walked out of the room. I sat there thinking he was coming back and he didnt. I went to the checkout and they said that my prescriptions were sent over and I could schedule for 4 weeks. He has zero bedside manner, little compassion and is outright rude if you take up too much of his time.

No bedside manner. Definitely a know it all and didn’t want to hear a thing I had to say. He rushed in, submitted my refills and rushed out. I was a number apparently wasting his time.

I’ve been going there for about 2 years. The doctor I had at first was wonderful Dr. Jones but he’s gone . I’m seeing Dr.Yang now . I use Togo to Summit Pain till they closed , he use to work there too . But he left and came here. I don’t think the guy likes me , he treats me with no respect . I just had blocks that always work , but something different is going on. He comes in room and cuts my meds down, and says I can’t take soma . First time I was told that, told me to go somewhere else.

He’s a joke!! He did a knee injection,and within an hour my leg looked like a tree trunk. I schedule an appointment with MY doctor, and they sent him in. He kept saying there is nothing wrong and it looked like that when he did it. There’s no swelling on my knee, he did the injection here. No kidding, I’m here because my whole leg is swollen to my hip, but there’s nothing wrong with me. Kept telling me to take Tylenol after I repeatedly said I am deathly allergic to that and can’t have nsaids!

Have much experience w/docs-this"creature" is by far the worst-utterly incompetent, uncaring, rude. Interrupts constantly, makes fun of your case(I doubt if he read my history as he prescribed dangerous drug for my condition-was smart enough to dump it on advice of pharmacist. Read other reviews of him-STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!

Awful. This doctor could care less about anything you say. He has his own agenda and is very rude. Expect to be interrupted alot, interrogated like your a criminal and leave no better off than when you walked into his office. Called me a liar about my 2 bad knees, when I have full documentation on surgeries etc. for the past 16 years! He has this " Dr.- I Am God and theres nothing you can do about it " whole attitude and demeanor. If you question him, he'll say, too bad, if you dont like it.

Just awful. This doctor basically called me fat to my face. He was disinterested in helping to manage my pain using any modalities besides narcotics. He falsified information in my chart after I terminated at the practice.
