The doctor was very knowledgeable and explained in detail reasons for my ear pain. It was nice to be in a medical office that was competent from the minute I checked in until I was checked out. This physician actually listens!

He will push for more tests to make money. Its becoming more and more common. Inconsiderate and rushing to see the next wallet. Apparent that he does not like his job and no sympathy for patients. Finding another Doctor~!
