This man was arrested in 2018 for defrauding his patients and participating in insurance schemes. Avoid at all costs.

My mother has waited 5 days in the hospital and still hasn't seen this doctor who was actually on the same floor three days ago. He hasn't even bothered to call and merely had an assistant deal with it and prescribed older standard meds and that's it. This guy is clearly only in it for the money.

This man takes on far too many patients and offers them woefully inadequate care. He does not visit his hospital patients but, instead, pawns them off on his nurse, Janet. He does not return phone calls. When he is questioned, he becomes belligerent and demeaning. He is careless, distracted, makes poor decisions, is a terrible communicator, disregards the advice of others and lacks compassion for his patients. He will offer no condolences when your loved one dies under his 'supervision'. Awful.

Not professional, is inappropriate at times, and he is aware of it as well, which makes it sad
