Joplin, MO |
This guy was recommended to me by another Dr. I go in for my appt. and he ask why am I here. Didn't even read my files. Was rude as hell.Shouldn't even be practicing!! Needless to say I am looking for a new Dr!!!
Joplin, MO |
So my 1st visit with this guy and he tells me "I'm retired" - 1st automatic red flag there. He was very rude and short with me at times, and gave me weird lectures on what to do with my body. Very strange man. Would not recommend to anyone. He's on his way out, skip. Fun side note: Jerk flashed me a dirty look when he found out I had dentures, like I was a meth head or some thing. My uncle got full dentures when he was 22 and never drank or did drugs, some people JUST HAVE BAD TEETH.

Saw him as a new patient for some unpleasant symptoms. I was having muscle weakness, nausea, dizziness, fast heartrate and a headache at that point every day for 3 weeks straight, and etc. He told me I was experiencing this because I had two kids and that it was all psychological. Come to find out I have a chiari malformation and retroflexed odotoid that's pressing on my brain stem. So glad I decided to go elsewhere. Worst dr I've ever seen.

Doesn't seem like he wants to really help. Just says "you're fine" and basically sends you in your way.
in Carterville mo |
My experience was he did nothing.. He was very rude to me. He did not address what I whent in for he was only interested in recommening a gastric bypass becuse my shoulder and neck was hurting. He said becuse I'm over weight that could make my neck and shoulder hurt. Would not recamend him to anyone. .
in Tulsa, okla |
Rude, inconsiderate, no nurse ever in room while he examined, unprofessional and a waste of precious time.
in El Dorado Springs, MO |
Run the other way! Uncaring, judgmental, rude, and lacks knowledge.
