Kansas City |
Just met him yesterday and already getting the much needed MRI for my back and then back to see him all within a week. He listened and seemed to actually show concern. Any treatment or diagnosis is yet to be seen, but he seems very caring and trustworthy.

After your surgery is completed you better hope that you have no problems because if you do ,most likely after you make multiple attempts to get in touch with him he won't call you back and if you're lucky he'll call you back 10 days later no matter how much of pain you have ,after my surgery...more

He's super nice and friendly. I feel really lucky to have him as my pain management doctor. He made it super easy on me even when I was anxious and scared.

The man has a GOD complex. Without reviewing previous history, or requesting new tests, he re-diagnosed me with a diagnosis that was ruled out by 5 other doctors. He is extremely rude.
