No bed side manner. He left me worse off in pain after back surgery. Could not get a follow up appointment after surgery. I was told by his staff he would not see me again unless I needed more surgery.

He did a quad fusion surgery on me that took from 7:30 am to 11 pm at night. He was always available to answer questions and had a good bedside manner
