    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 for the program had to hang up call back, mind you while I'm on hold the advertising tells you free meet and greet for the suboxen program and how the office is trained in substance bottom line see prof

    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!
