Patient Comments (2)
Alvin, TX |
I think that he is one of the most knowledgeable and capable Mohs' surgeons that I know. I would refer patients to him with complete confidence.
His office in LaGrange refused to fill my prescriptions because they were prescribed by a doctor who has left the practice. I feel this is unacceptable since I am a registered and long time patient of this office. I will be seeking care from another dermatologist in the area because of this and because of the sanctions in other states against this doctor. I recommend any potential patient to carefully read the background check section of this website.
