      Returning patient; arrived 1/2 hour early to fill out paperwork; 20 minutes past appointment time (not bad) was weighed, blood pressure checked and put into a windowless room. 1 hour and 15 minutes later I walked out. In that 1 hour and 15 minutes no-one opened the door once, A.) to tell me the doctor was running late, B.) see if I needed more magazines, or C.) was I still in there.

      We waited over 3hrs to see him and once we did, he couldn't give us any answers whatsoever! He mumbled during part of his answers ,repeated questions after rcving his answer, answered a phone call on his cell without politely excusing himself after waiting, never bothered to actually place my sister on any medication after her 3rd appt to help with the palpations that where painful for her. He was beyond rude!!! I will never see this man again or suggest anyone to see him!

      Incompetant, he should retire!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
