A very bad experience for being the first time visit. He was rude to my wife and myself. My wife and i came in 20 min earlier than we were supposed too for our appointment like they asked and he said you could not come any earlier I'm going to be late to my surgery. Did not care about us just care...more

Very bad. Was very rude. Was trying to tell my friend that she was confused and she was totally lucid. Hard to talk to. Talked over you. Was reprimanding his staff girls in front of us.
