Patient Comments (4)
in Greenwood SC |
Yes. very good doctor. Very Knowledgable
in Augusta, GA |
He did a good job removing my glioblastoma, but he is an arrogant jerk. I asked him to help me with a service connected disability claim and he would not. When I asked him why, he basically said he would not and is not interested in helping me. Since the resection, he has shown no interest in my condition or been there to provide insight on my MRI's. He presents himself as cocky and uncaring and could care less about you once his end is done with you. BARF

Can not say enough he is great.
in Graniteville, SC |
very kind and personable and very intelligent. I felt he was a very competent surgeon. Very down to earth.
