Nice man, good intentions and practice, but please don't clump your appointments causing people to wait over an hour and a half to see you.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being worst 10 being best , This physician rates a ZERO!

Most DISHONEST physician we have ever met!!! Goofy, unprofessional personality! Many surgical complications, refused to provide aftercare. Practices very sloppy medicine. Suggest seeking another opinion!
