When I needed emergency surgery he took great care of me, checked in on me postop & during my hospital stay. My first time ever needing surgery, he made sure I understood everything involved. Most definitely would highly recommend him.

When he did my back surgery he glued my back instead of using stitches like most doctors and it left me disfigured. He never checked on me after surgery. I would never recommend him or ever go back to this doctor. I have had many back surgeries but only 1 done by him.
