Do not use this Dr. unless you like rudeness . We made complaints against his nurse & office staff for multiple times for being very rude and unprofessional, never answers phones,barley returning phone messages, I just received a letter telling me that I have been dismissed as a patient after 18 yrs ,But not just from his care but the entire Bend Memorial Clinic he works for. Which happens to be the largest medical center within 250 miles, ,No Explanation at all.

The best at identifying problems and solutions.
in Bend, OR |
He does not monitor what medications his patients are taking, and allows patients to continue on unneeded prescriptions, at the wrong dosage, and ignores signs of toxicity, until the patient is hospitalized and no longer able to walk. He is not honest with the patient or the patient's family. He is rude to older patients with limited education who have difficulty understanding.
