Worse doctor in the world, if you value your safety stay away from this quack, I had a very good doctor try to repair the damage this guy caused me, unfortunately what he did to me could not be fixed. I have owned my owned business for 25 years and had to close because I could not work any longer....more

Terrible experience. He could not wait to do surgery, but after the fact... He was not helpful and seemed to care less about my recovery experience and return to work. Can I put zero stars?
