He may be a good doctor but you can't make an appointment to see him. His staff is instructed not to make appointments more than 3 months out and he's always booked up for three months. Yet he's still taking new patients. Insurance companies refuse to help.

I'm very disappointed with his lack of follow-up. He was supposed to order a test after my appointment and it's still not scheduled three months later. When you call his office and remind them, nothing happens. And the staff has instructions not to messages for him. It's very frustrating. Unfortunately his office, Pulmonary Associates of Southern Arizona, are the only sleep specialists covered by my insurance. I'm planning to change insurance companies as soon as I can.
