My Stepmom went to see this Doctors, he did nothing for her. He told her she has Anxiety, and needs Botox for her head tremors. Regular Doctor thinks she meet have Huntington's chorea disease. We are looking for a better Doctors that can actually help her.

I was seen by this doctor on 9/8/2016 for a work related injury. He was very unprofessional, was very demeaning and did not give proper treatment, and also discussed another patients medical issues in front of me to his student observer. He implied I was lying about my symptoms and embarrassed me in front of the office staff because this was a workmans comp case. He stated I have anxiety issues and would not properly assess the headache and neck pain I have. I would NOT recommend this doctor.

I went after experiencing a seizure for the first time. He listened, carefully explored the situation and my medical history, and then gave a very detailed informative diagnosis and a path to go forward on.
