Minimal exam, interaction, explanation, and incorrect diagnosis. Gruff demeanor.

This doctor does NOT listen to his patients. I was in constant pain for over 2 months and bringing in an MRI and x-rays, he did not want to here about where the pain was or that the MRI showed a meniscus tear. He insisted that I only had arthritis. I waited 4 months with no changes and no help...more

Unsatisfied in Novi, MI | Feb 9, 2017 Arrogant and rude, does not listen to his patients. Sent medications order to wrong pharmacy. One medication is not covered by my insurance, despite I asked to check my catalog. Stuff is impolite and rude. Avoid this place.

This guy has terrible bedside manner. Like the others say, he z is not compassionate at all, he will rush you in an out, it you don't have something straightforward or easy to diagnose he is useless.
