Doesn't except money over $20 then charges an additional $2 to process credit cards. I've never had to pay a copay before do to my ins.

Where do I begin with this doctor. The staff is very unprofessional they have no idea what they are doing. Along with the ignorance of his staff he is a terrible doctor. I don't understand how he ever got that MD behind his name. He has not passion or brain for his field. The only reason I am giving him 1 star is so I can post and let everyone know how useless and dangerous him and his staff are.

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.
