I wish the best in your retirement! You have been lake a father and a friend all these years Will miss you
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Extremely unethical. Threatens his patients, extremely condescending. Overprescribed a medication that made patient extremely sick, depressed, suicidal and unable to function normally. Blamed HER for the symptoms instead of acknowledging his mistake, threatened to put her in a mental hospital. Demeaning, unprofessional, and nothing more than a pill pusher. Even put her on a medication that she explained to him caused her panic attacks in the past. Should be fired for misconduct and negligence.

Most compassionate doctor I ever had. Smart too, he found the right combination of medications for my condition. His staff is nice. No perfect, it is difficult to have appointments with him.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
His staff consists of one person, and it is impossible to get her to get anything done.
Hollywood, FL |
Doesn't communicate well in English. Office building is in disrepair. Disrespectful and condescending towards patients.
