I have recommended family here. I like the care I receive. He listens to my concerns and he really seems to care. I have been a patient since he opened his practice.

He doesn't care about his patients and I'm assuming we aren't worth his time. Left messages for days with both his staff and answering service and he never called back. I've stopped thinking that he will ever return my calls. I've never felt so neglected and insignificant to a health care provider...more
