Patient Comments (2)

Worst doctor ever!!!! Period!!! No bed side manners. No care for patient concerns. It appears he hadno empathy at all to address my wife's concerns with her ailment. If you see you once you will recognize that you will be wasting your time. Go elsewhere. He's terrible as a doctor and as a human...more
