This man is, without a doubt, utterly incompetent, indifferent, couldn't care less about his patients and is ONLY interested in leaving his office at 5 P.M. on the dot. Utterly indifferent, could not answer very important questions and ONE of the very worst doctors I have ever seen - don't waste your time. There are far better doctors out there - this man is a total FLOP!

Dr. B has the worst staff and has a poor attitude. His receptionist was rude and couldn't order the medication on time for my appointments and didn't bother to call me to reschedule on 3 occasions! Had Dr. B shown ANY concern for my taking the time and effort to get to his office (no easy task) to find out I couldn't receive treatment (after confirming the medication was in), then I would have rated him better, but he had 1 excuse after another for her incompetence!
