Fishers, IN |
Seemingly confident but rude. I've been in pain and I got no sympathy; portrayed typical psychopathic behavior. He then made a few mocking remarks because how dare I question him!!

Good doc, minimizes pain from surgery. However, he does not give work restrictions that he should, and understates ppi ratings.
