Amazing Dr
in Toms River, NJ |
He is awesome. Very Smart knows his stuff and tells it like it is when it comes to pain and medication. The office staff has always been very good with me and kind . It is busy at certain times . It's the nature of the business though. Best Wishes

in Red Bank,N J |
Was told by office that they dont have time to call my insurance to do the pre-auth for my medication.Was told my pain did not matter they are too busy to make phone calls,Not the first time they said this.My insurance requires a pre auth for this medication especially because I have been off of it for 10 months.The Dr. Office staff was rude and kept cutting me off and talking over me.IT IS THEIR JOB to make these phone calls and they have no problem calling to get a pre auth for epudurals
He is great, staff is RUDE as hell and he honestly needs to get new employees. The only decent staff are one girl in the back, Michelle & Donna up front. Office manager needs to go.
