Patient Reviews (4)
in Sacramento, CA |
the only good part about my visit was some of the office staff the doctor kept me waiting over 3 hours past my schedule time before he finally came in to see me. He was one of the most cold and rude doctors I've ever paid to help take care of me. He does not care. He sat there in the room with me and probably look at me three or four times the entire time he was there. I left there with no answers and feeling like a low life because he belittled me about taking pain medications for my pain.

My experience with this doctor was horrible. He does not respect the patients he works with and becomes very vindictive difficult if he is questioned in any manner.

Great care and excellent job done on my left shoulder. Back to work. Thank you!
in CHICO, CA |
He is the BEST! 2 surgeries so far (shoulder and elbow) both experiences I felt that I couldn't have been in better hands. His office staff are great as well!
