Patient Comments (5)

They are all about the money. Doctor won’t do my surgery unless I pay him cash. Office is disorganized and DIRTY. Staff is rude and wait time is forever.

Not likely. He was abrupt and rude. He didn't take time to answer my questions or explain things clearly. I felt like he was pushy and trying to make me pay for my appointment with cash and i wanted to write a check.
