      The business Infectious Disease Consultants in Coral Springs may have good doctors but the doctors have poor patient relations and care in my experience. They did not answer my messages, leaving me hanging, and not knowing what to do. Even one of my other doctors gave an indication that they have trouble getting in contact with them. For peace of mind if you have a choice that is not an emergency you might want to look elsewhere so that you don't run into communication issues in my opinion.

      Very poor patient care. More concerned with covering his own butt than actually treating a patient. Refused vital care during IV antibiotic therapy that resulted in an antibiotic overdose and an extreme life threatening skin disorder. His total disregard for accepted patient treatment and ongoing blood tests to prevent an overload of prescribed IV antibiotics led to a week long stay at one hospital and a transfer to another hospital to get away from his recklessness.

      supper rude and sarcastic!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
