    He refused to send me to physical therapy for knee cartilage damage, permanent limp as a result. He is often very quick to come to an opinion, such as when he glanced for a few seconds at a close friend's MRI and exclaimed "we need to schedule a surgery." He was more concerned with his pocketbook than my friend's health - my friend eventually got referred to Douglas Jackson MD at Long Beach Memorial, Long Beach, CA, with far better results. Dr, Jackson found surgery was NOT indicated.

    Today, after my 4th appointment with this man, I left and drove straight to my doctor to demand a different referral. I did not feel comfortable with him from the beginning, but hung in there and gave him a chance. Today he walked in, introduced himself, and told me it was nice to meet me. He interrupted me partway through my explaining what was going on, and when I asked why it swelled, he shrugged and said I probably tore my ligament or something more and sent me to physical therapy.

    30 minutes wait in outside waiting room. Even before he examined or give my husband a chance to talk, he drew a conclusion without concrete evidence. Since then, he has been proven wrong by my husband's PCP and 2 other Orthopedic surgeons. Incompetent, dismissive, ego-maniac, apathetic, quick to assume patients in pain want pain killers, and to get his patients medicated/numbed. He is deceptive , a disgrace to the medical profession, and should not be in allowed to practice.
