He's not for everyone. He has no tolerance or empathy his patients. He did the least he could. Would not recomend him.

Several of the front office staff members are inept to the point of being rude and insulting. Their sole objective seems to be to make sure that no patient gets to see a physician unless they are completely satisfied that the patient has appropriate insurance coverage or other means of payment. The level of communication skills of these front office staffers is poor, and there is little evidence that they have empathy for the patients' physical and emotional situations.
