Very rude will not go back or ever recommend him.Stick to your lecturing.You wait for an appointment than you get a poor excuse like him.My wife needed help & all we got was come back in 4 months.This poor excuse should not be allowed to see patients

This doctor's staff has NO respect for his patients. We sat for a SOLID HOUR today before being told, Oops! You aren't on the doctor's schedule after all. Even though we were on the schedule at the front desk. We got absolutely no apology, from the doctor or anybody else. If I let someone...more
