Absolutely the worst place to go ever. The staff is the rudest people ever they are snotty and you can have an appt and still wait hours for them to just ignore you or be rude some more. I had my daughters tubes done and i know they overdid her anesthesia and she has had seizures and been horrible...more

If you smoke, you're screwed here. He'll gladly take your money, then lecture you about how bad smoking is. Captain Obvious. Doesn't take medical school to do that. Completely ineffective as a physician.

Maybe he would have been helpful, had he taken the time to listen to me. Left his office very unsure of everything. Make sure you have papers with past diagnosis with you.
