Worst experience I've ever had w a doctor & doctors office....zero communications skills...nobody calls you back, there is absolutely no communication within the office w the so called nurses! I changed my mind about having surgery & chose to have ablation done instead so of course he wants to see me to tell the exact things I already know because we have already talked about it my first appt w him! I can't get an appt for over a month!! Same w the first appt I made!! I would give ZERO stars!

He introduced himself every appointment, he didn't look at my chart to know I had seen him 5-6 times before. Has 0 communication skills, never letting me know the results of tests. Sent me to blood work & Ultrasounds without letting me know. The nurse let me know as I was making my next appointment. For my 20 week anatomy scan I suddenly got paperwork in the mail that I had been referred. Moving to a new OBGYN was the best thing I did for myself and for my baby. Wish I could give 0 stars.

Horrible. Was very generic. Uses old equipment and does not care about his clients. Lies a lot. Does not disclose that he works with other Dr.'s. He can't wait to go to the next patient so he collects the insurance money. Very sad. Would give him 0 stars if possible.
