    TERRIBLE!!!! I WOULD NEVER REFER ANYONE TO THIS FACILITY. THE DOCTOR IS DECENT, BUT FRONT OFFICE STAFF ARE HORRIBLE! FIND ANOTHER PLACE

    He's a good doctor. Personable listens to you, makes sure you're at ease, explains things where you can understand and I trust his decisions.

    Waited 2 hours in lobby just to be seen and was not given any kind of update as to why my 12:15 appointment didn't matter since I had to wait in the lobby for 2 hours. Would have left if I wasn't so sure that they already billed my insurance before I was even seen. Do yourself a favor and find a different doctor.

    It was horrible cause he mistreated me while I was already sick. Didn't do nothing bit gave me potent dangerous meds that kept me sick. He knew I needed to see a specialist for my condition and he refused to refer me to one until I got upset and demanded to see one in the end. All he did was charged my insurance for unnecessary doctor's visits and unnecessary blood test. Now my heart is damaged from his carelessness.
