Patient Comments (3)
Ocala, FL |
Today is the first time I have ever met the physician. I will never recommend him and I will be sure to tell everyone within hearing distance how he treated myself and my family member just because he didnt like something he heard. This man is unprofessional, disrespectful and I hope his family member is never treat or spoken to the way he treated me. He needs a new job but that will never happen.
in Cocoa Beach, FL |
Very skilled MD that cares about his patients. I chose the right place for an ankle fusion. I would not hesitate to recommend him for foot and ankle problems.
in The Villages, FL |
Top level foot and ankle specialist at the University of Florida. Very friendly and courteous. Takes plenty of time with patients but, as a result, can run late on his appointments.
