Do not go to this guy! He misdiagnosed me and today had to get my gallbladder removed. Went to him little over a year ago and he said it was not my gallbladder but gerd. Tells everyone this and gives meds for it. Been in pain and thought must be gad, slept wrong, ate something wrong, etc.. He also misdiagnosed my neighbor and if he didnt go elsewhere would have died.

I hadn't seen this doctor since my colonoscopy, and I needed a refill. I called in for a refill and received one month's supply. I called in for another refill, and never was told that I should come in to see the doctor until I called in again. I had been suffering for two weeks by this time and no one called me at all. I made an appointment to see the doctor and asked for an emergency refill, it was not done. To date, I have no refill and my appointment is not until August 11, 2016.
Patient had not been seen in 2 years, was twice given 1 month refills and advised she needed to make an appt. She was a No Show for her scheduled appt.
