The first two visits were fine, but on the 3rd, he had changed...He was very aggressive and had no bedside manners on my last visit. Seemed like he was putting on a show in front of his intern at the time. No one should have to deal with someone like this.

He listens to his patients and goes above and beyond to help them with the problems that ails each patient. What impressed me the most is how he treats each patient as a person, not a number of a $$. He genuinely cares about each and every one of us.
