Patient Comments (2)

Never got to even schedule an apt if you are looking for his suboxen treatment and looking for a staff that takes phone calls and has any clue of what it takes to make a call for the help he could provide, do not call this number. I was first put on hold for 15 min when I asked if he had openings...more

I've been seeing him since approx 2011 for a number of issues and without his help I honestly don't think I'd be here to write this. In addition he's the 1St Dr,out if many, that I believe genuinely cares about ME. He a great, knowledgeable Dr and overall person. II recommend him highly!
