He has been my doctor for years and I would never go elsewhere. He spends a significant amount of time with all of my family members as we all see him… Every time we go in. He is a kind considerate and pathetic man. I will never want another primary care doctor

This doctor is disorganized, he has an archaic way of treating patients, he does not care or spend time, he doesn't get usual daily tests that any competent doctor would, he is lazy and does not take kindly to any feedback from RNs or talking to family members. 48 hours after admission to St. MARY'S and we still have no diagnosis. I can't wait for a fresh pair of eyes and hoping for competent caring MD tomorrow.

He is kind, knowledgeable and means well but his staff is inaccurate and unorganized. I am unsatisfied with them for not getting me my positive lab results (waited over 3 months to get me my bad news and gave a poor excuse), for inaccuracies in paperwork, and mis-scheduling me. I believe he is a good physician but needs to make some changes with how he runs his office.

He is very knowledgeable and keeps up with the latest treatments. My wife and I have been going there for 20+ years and have been very happy with his services. He is accessible and that is important to me. His office is outdated and he does not accept debit or credit cards. Those are two minor complaints but not a deal breaker.
