in Jupiter, FL |
Absolutely incredible doctor with methodical professionalism and a superb bedside manner. Not only was the treatment plan well thought through and ultimately more effective than I could have expected, I was made to feel confident and well-informed throughout.
in Stuart, FL |
This doctor is the most unprofessional doctor I have ever encountered. He was forced upon us at JMC. He is disrespectful & doesn't abide by rules (POA & medical directives), & makes snide comments re: family dynamics. He doesn'tt explain his decisions, nor consult patient's family as directed by law, in our case, nor does he read & understand patient chart. We not only would NEVER recommend him, we will likely file a formal complaint about him to the proper governing body.
