An excellent Doctor. However, his office staff is a mess. I called 3x for a referral and still was not able to make one.

Could not get through to the office for an appointment. After a week of trying to get through their phone system, I finally got through and informed them that their system was still not working. Customer service person stated that I required a referral but I know for a fact that my insurance does not require one. Customer service person argued with me over this and I finally lost it it between that and the phone system and inability to contact their office. They argued with me about that, too.

Very caring and compassionate Doctor. He really listens and takes time with me. I feel confident in his know leg and plan for my health. He's short staffed but worth the any wait.
