    This man needs to retire and stop trying to take patients money and not care about theirs well-being. He needs to be removed from the Medical Board. I live with a severe chronic illness and his lack of care or him being dismissive caused my illness to progress. His staff never did work on time regarding my medication authorizations. Please be your own advocate, don't go to him. Your health depends on it.

    This person is very rude. Came to see him for medication and got scolded for asking too many questions. He proclaimed what he said was the truth and the only truth, and refused to further explain his answers. He made me feel like I'm a foolish patient. Very condescending! If I have all the answers regarding my illness, I wouldn't have to see him. His diagnosis painted a very gloomy picture of my long-prognosis. I went home feeling more hopeless about my condition.
    It took this gentleman too long respond to my issues & request. He now finally has referred me out, but it took 5-6 years. Not sure who is giving him 4 & 5's, but I strongly disagree. 2 & 3's are a better range. He is now trying, I had to file a grievance against in 2013, just to get complete care. So, let's be clear, I give credit where credit is due, that's not here.
