I was his patient when he practiced in Lawrenceville Ga. He is a good Doctor and covers everything you could expect. I never left his office without having full knowledge of what he found. He is also kind and considerate.

He may be a descent physician, but he is either insensitive or oblivious to his patients as persons or LGBTQ. I had a colonoscopy for preventive screening, and during his consult with my husband following the procedure, he deliberately misgendered me in spite of being corrected by his nurse and my husband several times. He did the procedure and it was obvious I am a cis male. I am in a same-sex marriage, and it was offensive being repeatedly being referred to as "she" or "her."
