Patient Comments (3)
Palm Bay, FL |
He listens to my concerns and makes sure I get the necessary tests in order to stay ahead of my disease
in Indialantic, FL |
He is smart, intuitive, kind and highly personable. My favorite doctor!
in Vero Beach, FL |
Not at all pleased. Doctor would not listen what my issues were. He was trying to treat me for pain I was not having. He also claimed I would not give medications a try when I had horrible side effects after a few days. All he wanted to do was drug me up instead of actually finding out the what the problem was, after he told me my blood work was off.
