I will never recommend this doctor. His practice including his staff has no compassion for his patients.My husband has dementia, 75 years old and in a nursing home. I was not informed my husband had an appointment and I could therefore not go with him I called his office for them to call me since he cannot communicate. I was told they were short of staff and could not do that. I inquired how he can be treated if my husband could not do that.. "Well then, maybe he should go back."

My visit was with a female PA. I think her name is Besa. My exam was very detailed and all my additional questions answered. The PA made me very comfortable and she was very professional. I would definitely recommend her to others and hope I have next year for my annual check. The other staff was friendly and professional from the time I walked in until I scheduled my next visit.
