      I was sent to him by Claims resolution Corp. (Workers comp). Did the bare minimum to do what he took a oath for which was to treat me and made sure his diagnosis and findings were in the workman's comp favor.

      Wait time was a little long, but worth it. Staff was so efficient, kind, and had a great relationship with every one who walked in and out. The doctor was fast paced but very intelligent, he even gave me a hug after the appointment! The office worked well together. I was seen in there Bayonne office, I called and had appointment the next day, and MRI in that week, and a month later I have a diagnosis and I am on medication and feeling great. So thankful for this wonderful Doctor!

      This man should not have a license to practice medicine ! I'm not going to go into detail but please read all of the other reviews. I wish I had.
      Haledon, NJ |
      Saw me as a worker's comp patient and ignored all my symptoms and released me without treating my issues. Had to go to my own Dr, terrible bedside manner.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
