Patient Comments (2)

I would never recommend this doctor. He doesn't read charts or listen to patients. He then blames them when he doesn't have a clear picture of what's going on and becomes aggressive and rude.

Mom had a stroke, and we needed to check her swallowing. He was very gentle and compassionate to her needs. Nice staff, would gladly take any family member to him.
