Patient Comments (5)
Very indecisive and seemingly unsure of a clear plan of care. He asked me more than once if I was using drugs or abusing alcohol and did drug/alcohol tests as part of my new patient well visit which I thought was weird. He seemed so focused on making sure I wasn't an addict that he couldn't effectively address my concerns. Offensive considering the tests were negative. Apparently I look like a junkie? Answers questions like a politician...like he doesn't want to commit to an answer. Not for me.

Just walked out of his office. He told me I asked too many personal questions. I wanted to know if he was capable in my opinion of handling my problem. very unprofessional!

Do yourself a favor and find another doctor to see. They will tell you one thing when scheduling $30 with my insurance, another when there $72 not covered by my insurance and then bill you for more money $83. Lady at the desk doesn't know anything but maybe her name. Can't answer any questions. I only came in for a prescription for $10 90 day refill generic meds costing me $200 for 20 mins with doctor. Other people there complaining about bill. Called 5 times to get answer about refill.STAY AWAY
