Beware. Regardless of his abilities he only has one insurance carrier that he accepts. That means you will be paying out-of-pocket unless you're with Wellpoint. I got screwed by having him as a contractor and not as a patient in his office

Kind, compassionate, and helpful. Very lucky to find him. He believes in you and is up on the latest in pain management and is very open to holistic medicine being part of your care too. Very good with fibromyalgia.

Found the staff to be unconpassionate and rude. Excessive wait times. Doctor talked fast and did not listen well, the arrogant attitude didn't help. With so many choices out there-much better options available!
