The secretary answering is VERY rude! She dictates who is worthy of seeing the dr and who doesnt! She was bold in her questioning my symptoms and asked questions only a Dr should ask. I hung up with her during our chat and wouldnt reccomend visiting this office!

Cares about his patients! I have been seeing him for just about a year now and he has done wonderful things for my condition and goes out of his way to fight the insurance company for what he feels is right. Wouldn't trade him for the world! I am so grateful to him and all his staff????
