Terrible experience ! The first thing you would notice is his arrogance . My husband didn't a need a pacemaker...This horrible doctor was trying to convince us of the opposite to make money..... Just horrible !

Not fond of his bedside manner. No reason why I have a 4pm appointment and not taken in the room until 8pm and only with doctor for less than 5 minutes. Plus the office staff one girl was extremely nice the other needs lessons in customer service skills!!! She was BEYOND rude.
