He is AWESOME! He LISTENS, UNDERSTANDS, & REALLY CARES about his patients...... Best Dr. I have been to. I am deaf and he has NO problem taking the time to repeat himself so I can undertstand everything he says.... My daughter went to him & agrees 100% with me.

If I could leave no stars, I absolutely would. This was by far the WORST "doctor" I've ever met. From the beginning, very demeaning in his behavior. He asked me what I wanted him to do and said I'd like to possibly get a new MRI for my back, he then proceeded to yell, I CANT JUST WRITE A SCRIPT...more
