      He's WONDERFUL! He listens, advises, explains all the options, answers my questions and is always patient and kind. I'm not certain who the other reviewers saw but there's no way it was the same Doctor.

      He was horrible. Arrogant, condecending, interrupted, made us wait over an hour everytime we had an appointment. I have worked with doctors for 25 years but this was the worst. We have picked up husbands records and gone somwhere else. He is a terrible doctor and a rude human being. I do not recommend him.

      This DR. has no manners, has no considerations towards his patients. He does not listen to medical problems, he is cynical. He spent 5 minutes assessing me, and made me feel very uncomfortable. He rushed the visit as if you inconvenienced him and were taking valuable time from him. At the end of the visit, he leaves the room without any treatment plan or medication, and leaves you hanging. No knowledge on spine problems. He does not say good bye, he just leaves. VERY RUDE, he should sell cars!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
