He never answers the phone. We live in Ga and sometimes have emergencies where we need him and he is never available.

He was more intrestested in leaving than he was in answering the questions I had about my medication. That is after I recommend the seizure medication I had researched. Very rood and disrespectful!

Very rude and disrespectful, incompetent staff, doesn't seem to care about his patients, constantly interrupting you when you talk. Overall the worst doctor I have ever seen
