I found him to be pleasant but his follow up is terrible. Have called the office several times over a two week period with a question and never received a response. Will take my business elsewhere, i.e. to a doctor who shows his patients respect.

Great guy. I'm facing a pretty scary problem and have had 3 recent visits with him. He carefully reviewed by information and test results and answered my questions - even called me over a weekend to be sure I was ok.

I found the doctor and his staff to be very attentive, thorough, answered all my questions and was easy to talk to. Even following up after a procedure with a personal phone call at home

Would not ever chose this doctor again. He has an attitude problem, little to no interest in his patient, but does seem to have plenty of time available. Told me that his recommendations were a shot in the dark. He said he did not have enough information to diagnose but did not even do any testing until suggested by my wife, & then ordered the minimum. Did not call with the test results & when I finally tracked him down he said he did not have enough information to suggest what to do.
