This is a very bad and greed doctor. I had a colonoscopy with him and he hurt. He never explained what really going to do. He enhanced he paid removing polyps. His office staff had troubles collecting their payment from my insurance company and he immediately send me to his favorite collection company. NOT once did his office reach out to me. I had this problem for almost 3 years. I'm confident I will prevail, because I followed my obligations and communications with my health provider.
Excellent physician Very knowledgeable Easy to talk to Very pleased!

Total joke. Talk about a money hungry individual. Nothing nice to say about him as a person or as a dr. Don't trust him what so ever.
