      Nurse wrote five prescriptions without seeing skin. Doctor signed the prescriptions without seeing skin.
      Very unsanitary office. Doc did not use gloves to cut biopsy. Refused to address all problem skin areas identifued claiming that more than 1 biopsy would open him up to insurance audit. Only biopsied 2 areas on first visit claiming that I had to come back. No call with results. Second visit limited to 1 small biopsy claiming possible insurance audit. Don't waste your time with this quack!
      Hillsborough County, FL |
      Avoid this doctor at all risk. He is always in a rush. Does not fully communicate with you. The patient is a burden to him. It's all about the money. Does not call you with biopsy results. A scammer.
      in Tampa,FL |
      To the point. In and out appointments. Staff is very knowledgeable and kind.
      in Tampa, FL |
      Knowledgeable staff and Doctor. He is very efficient and did an excellent job on my cancer removal.
      in Apollo Beach, FL |
      Very knowledgeable. Waiting room can be a little slow but I never waited more than 20 minutes.
      in Valrico, FL |
      He is very rushed his office is very dirty and trash cans filled with needles and bloody pads no lids on them. Also he is rude when asking questions. Would not recommend him for anyone so many others to choose from.
      in Belleview, FL |
      Very rushed, doesn't want to listen... would rather talk about sports. had me on psoriasis meds and did not give order to have liver panel to make sure methotrexates weren't damaging it, which is VERY negligent! Then office never called me for f/up appt.... done.
      Very rushed.... No time to listen... Just rush you out prescribed meds and not concerned for patient... Just a quick fix... It seemed, not interested of how the incident happened.... Poor service....

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
