Not worth the copay. Spent only 3 min. with me in which he reviewed MRI images & report of broken bone. He didn't provide any useful info regarding my serious injury or method of repair/recovery. I won't mention the other issues but he doesn't seem to have any interest or concern about patients or their injuries?!?!

doctor was dismissive missing a fracture. 1st appt: had to show him spot on xray where the ER doctor saw a fracture. Reply? "oh i think i see something". He missed a "crushed" scaphoid and put a removable splint on and said to "move it around at night and showering". a month later follow-up, another dismissive appointment; said he'd call with the results but "looking better, start using it more and getting out of the splint". next day rush phone call to surgery. certainly not with him...

worst attitude, treats you like a transaction. will suggest something even when he knows the tests are negative. obviously does not care.
