Stay away from this doctor, he is just in it for the money like the other reviewer wrote. He does not have his patients best interest at heart, his answers are blunt and arrogant. In my opinion, he is dangerous and should be investigated. My husband is now fighting for his life, we went to him 3 months ago with concerns, he wouldn't even stay in the room long enough to hear out my husband, or answer any of my questions. I'm so angry, I have to share, to protect other people from him.

he tries to get his patients out of his office as soon as possible, without taking an adequate history, explaining treatment options, and letting the patient know what to expect from the treatments or the prognosis for the disease. he strikes me as being burned out
in Portsmouth, VA |
He is very thorough, straight forward, compassionate, and very easy to discuss any issues with that you may be having at that time.
