Very arrogant, no bed side manner! It is his way or no way the staff at the hospital did not even want to ask him anything or tell him anything bc how he is. I had surgery and was had been on a Ned for years he knocked me down to even lower then what I was taking before surgery, I call and talk to doc on call and she is very rude bc it's before hours and tells me take two what he gave me and hangs up!! They simply don't care in my option it's all about the money!!

Office staff was incredibly rude! Told us most people walking the street had same pain and problems and it was something we would just have to live with. The most arrogant and unfriendly doctor I've ever met. When asked if we could check in to chiropractic treatment he laughed and said it was pointless and would wouldn't work. Guess what... it did work! Do yourself a favor and find a different doctor!
in Vincennes, IN |
Horrible office staff. Reviews mri results with faxed imagines& judges weather they will see you off them. Has no education on certain illnesses regarding the head like chiari, gives you incorrect info and tells you not to research it. Drove 1 1/hrs twice for them to tell me once got there that he had to reschedule. Horrible! Disrespectful, time wasting, uneducated.
in Boonville, Indiana |
Very arrogant and totally the wrong diagnosis. He thought it was nerve damage from a Cath I had back in December and got that diagnosis from his PA. He NEVER once touched me or listened when I tried to explain where the pain was coming from. So Dr. Troffkin if you see this start checking your patients yourself and listening to them because you were SO wrong with my diagnosis. On April 14th,2016 I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, it started in my prostate and is in almost every bone in my body.
