Patient Comments (3)

Did not follow through on what we had discussed concerning medication. What he said he was going to do didn't happen. Does the basics of his job and that's about it. Sent me to out of network facility and I got stuck with the bill.

Nice guy, but no follow through. I have to call the office repeatedly -- and mostly just get voicemail. Can't tell if he is too busy or the staff incompetent.

Every appointment is the same. Light conversation, updating the records, little focus on your numbers, light concern for long-running issues. Disappointing.
