He did not come across as knowledgable. In fact because of his bad treatment I ended up in the hospital for something he could treat in his office.

He was very thorough and fast to get my condition under control. He explained everything to me in terms I could understand. He treated my asthma aggressively which was a great thing and did allergy testing to see what caused it. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
