The most kind, intelligent, informed and supportive MD that has ever treated my issues, improved the my physical problems & most of all treated me with total respect. The medications he prescribes must be well controlled & thus treated exactly as the FDA demands or your prescription will not be...more

He is a hack who should be brought on charges before the State Board. Suggesting an abortion as a solution was vile - as if that was the correct choice. Something we were not even considering - at all. His focus is to get paid what ever he can. there is no care for the patient.
