Patient Comments (5)

While he may have skills and experience that serve him well as a surgeon, I found him dismissive, condescending, and decidedly unsympathetic.

I found him to be friendly, courteous, caring, and informative. He took the time to explain all aspects of the procedure and I felt very confident having him do the surgery. The results were exactly as I hoped for.

This guy is NASTY: confrontational and verbally aggressive to the point of being abusive. He has no right treating patients.

Very hardcore surgeon. Not very interested in the patient or the process. I've found him and his office staff to be lackluster in their responses to questions and general support. Sometimes abrasive. Lacks humility (which may be a useful trait in a surgeon)
