      Awful. Smokes. Is awkward, I do not trust at all. Very poor interpersonal skills. Made me feel uncomfortable. How is this old guy still a surgeon??????? Yikes.
      Cincinnati, OH |
      Poor interpersonal and communication skills. Extremely awkward. I don't trust him at all based on my interactions. Am told he is chairman of the urology program and that he got the program into a probationary period: be warned! He is scary. Think he is way past his prime... Hence the high scores in the past: Avoid if possible. If you see him, seek a second opinion. How can you trust a surgeon that smokes????!!!! Doesn't the "surgeon general" highly advise against smoking???? Would give a zero.

      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.
