Patient Comments (1)
Didn't care for this doctor at all. My wife went to see him for simple hemorrhoids and this guy kept milking us. The staff keeps telling you "we rarely perform surgery". That seemed like code for me, we want to keep you on the payroll for extra visits. We asked for surgery, had it scheduled for the next day. He agreed to it and I took time off for this from my job. He then backed down from the surgery and we went to see him one more time. We needed to get somebody who can do the job.
