Patient Comments (3)
Would give zero stars if possible. Horrible bedside manner. Is not concerned about you or your health, just his payday. Arrived 15 minutes early for appointment then waited over an HOUR to be seen. He also seems a little slow in processing information. Definitely avoid.

Definitely one of the worst "doctors". He is more of a businessman than a doctor. Does not care about the patient or their problems. Is more concerned about making money and scheduling you to as many appointments as possible. Rude, indifferent and careless. Does not want to hear you out and is simply in the practice to fill his pockets. AVOID
in East Hartford, CT |
Hands down worst Doctor I have ever met. Does not let you know what is going on. Leaves you in the room waiting without knowing what you are waiting for, meanwhile he is eating a sandwich. Does not leave room for you to ask questions. Purely rude.
