The worst doctor ever. Took our child based on our pediatricians recommendation. He barely spent 15 seconds before rushing out. Waste of time and money. Please stay away.

I found him to be very dismissive and arrogant . Very hostile if the patient is seeking information and has questions and reasonable concerns. I would definitely not recommend him at all. I felt extremely uncomfortable with him and couldn't wait to get out of his office.
