Dr is very short and abrupt very rude does not know how to deal with people cannot remember what meds he prescribed has to call pharmacy to find out yet he prescribes them to you. Doesn't leave much confidence in this doctor since he no longer has his private practice now at Orcutt Medical Center you are more of a number than a patient no compassion or respect for patients avoid this doctor at all costs.

Very professional and clearly cares a lot about his patients. Always greets us with a smile.

Upon meeting me the first time, I can't handle your case--you need to go to pain management. He didn't examine or question me. Then said he would see me in six months! Very uncaring and unprofessional.
