Great doctor but unfortunately his office staff is unacceptable. Tried more than 25 times over a four week period to reach the doctor. Office staff which one holding never answers the phone. Tried reaching the doctor to the main hospital switchboard same results. Unfortunately at this cost can’t use a physician who you cannot reach. It’s a shame great doctor but doesn’t I had to hire any qualified staff. What is frequently double billed insurance company makes things worse. Avoid this doctor

Dr. Mechanic treated me for over ten years. He was always somewhat arrogant. After ten years of continual health problems he said the steroids he had me on were "just a placebo". I don't know which is more unconscionable, the fact that he misdiagnosed me for ten years, and did not apologize for his mistake, or the fact that he treated me with steroids for that long, even though he believed they were a placebo. There is something psychologically wrong with this doctor.

Arrogant and incompetent. His office staff is terrible. I almost has unnecessary surgery but fortunately got a second opinion. Avoid, avoid.
