This man should not be practicing medice. I was a compensation case and was sent to him against my will. He is the worse man I have ever seen practice medicine. He put me on light duty when I was in sever pain. I had no choice but to leave my position with my employee and return to my home town. On my last visit when notified him of my intentions. He slammed the chart shut and walk out of the exam room. He is only there to send people back to work even if they are not phyically abe to.He sux.
