This doctor's office was dirty & crowded. I waited hours to be sent "down the hall" for xrays even though they have a room for xrays in the office itself. After waiting for xrays- we waited again- to be seen by a PA for less than 5 minutes. The doctor didn't even assess my child but talked only to me about the xrays saying he wants to send me to another doctor. Then I had to go back to the xrray location to retrieve the xrays to take to another doctor. On the way out they charged me $223 !!

Went to the office for consultation. Doctor spend 2 min with my son and rush us out. I did pay for the consultation out of pocket as It was requested. Received unexpected bill from his office for treatment that he did not perform. Office staff very unprofessional. Stay away from this business..

He did not even look at my son's chart, barely took a look at him, and we spent maybe 5 minutes with him before he rushed off. Rude, abrupt, and poor attitude.
