    Smart Aleck, this doctor is lazy, on both visits waited over an hour, he does NOT know how to read a CT scan or MRI. did not take any time with us to review results. We do not recommend this doctor to ANY one.!!!

    My experience, TERRIBLE Waited for over an hour past my appointment time and after driving over 200 miles to see this doctor. I find out when I get there that a family of 4 had the very same appointment time as I did. We were all scheduled for 2:30, so I waited and waited. At 3:30 I got my $40 co pay refunded and I left his office. A very long wait time is normal for this office. Do yourself a favor, this doctor is way to busy. FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR
