This Dr has no bedside manner whatsoever.. On the 2 visits I had not once did he come in and introduce himself or acknowledge me. Just sat down on 1st visit and said what's the problem. Never made eye contact or explain what options I may have. Ordered a myelogram. On follow-up visit he again came into the room and did not acknowledge me. Just sat down looked at rad report & CT. Said I need to go see a neurologist & walked out. Second time at Emergeortho & will never go back there.

This Dr. Is the rudest person I have ever met. He was so rude and disrespectful that I was so mad I left his office crying. I would not advice anyone see him. The rest of the staff was great.

If you like a Dr. With no bedside manners, this guy is for you. He botched my disc replacement so I was in there frequently post surgery. He never recognized me in person or by name. He had never read his previous notes before coming into the office. He had also never reviewed the tests he requested prior to coming into the office to see me (2 MRI's and 2 CT mylograms). At one point post surgery he asked if he had operated on me ? Really ? At that point my wife refused to come back with me
