Patient Comments (5)

Rude, explained nothing about exam and was annoyed when I complained he was hurting me. Will never visit this practice again. It should be noted that there are 5 other doctors in this practice that I know nothing about and the office staff, front desk and techs, were lovely.

Very rude, did not explain what exam he was going to perform on a child and got angry when they flinched. Seemed annoyed if you asked any questions. Would never return or recommend anyone.
