Patient Comments (5)
Rockford, IL |
Most arrogant Dr I have ever been in contact with. I would stay away from this guy. Calling him a Dr is title he doesn't seem to deserve. It's about the patient sir not about you. I would prefer zero stars.
Houston, TX |
This doctor is EXTREMELY rude. He also let my husband leave his office with a blood pressure of 197/101. His medical assistant did not care to properly take the blood pressure AND there was a needle and some form of medication left in.the room before we were told to enter. He had no compassion what so ever and he questioned the work of the heart surgeon that saved my husbands life.

I saw this Dr because this is who my insurance covered. Let me start out by saying his beside manner is the worst. I have a services dog. He would not let him any where near me. This man never spoke to me except to have me move. If they could post pic. You would see all the bruises he left on me. I do not bruise Easley and I have them all over my arms and in both hands. It seemed like he enjoyed stabbing me with the needles and each one was done harder than the last.
