I read some reviews that were not so positive but I am so glad I saw him! Great bedside manner! Took a lot of time. Looked at all the tests, did a thorough physical exam, first was thinking surgery but then sent me to a great PT for a one week eval to see if intensive PT could help me avoid surgery. Great appt! I did wait quite a while to see him while in the office but I was able to get the appt in a week from when I called.

Horrible! Doesn't care about patient education! Will be walking out the door answering your question ! Horrible bedside manner! I barely saw him for 5 mins and waited over 45 mins in waiting room past my apt time! You have to ask him for treatments (i.e. Drain fluid, give cortisone shot) and he is reluctant Bc he doesn't care about patient's pain level. He is arrogant, and jerk and needs to retire. He is a terrible Doctor! Doesn't give a crap about his patients. He rushes out the door!

Although my family has seen 3 different doctors in this group, and we have had a good medical experience, we find out 2 years after my wife's last vist that the outside company doing the billing made errors. Now they want us to pay them $25 for an item not billed 2 years ago. Although this is not over the top a problem, they informed us that these types of events can be billed up to 7 years after the mistake is found which now tells me if they are coming after me for $25 out of thousands.
