Patient Comments (2)
in West Hartford, CT |
Years ago would have highly recommended when he was in private practice. He was my go to doc. Being in a group environment has ruined his bedside manner. He always seems rushed, doesn't listen to everything you have to say and doesn't have empathy for patients with true pain. Explained to me that my surgery was a simple surgery prior to the date set. After surgery constant pain, no returned phone calls, sent a letter certified expressing my issue, no response. Still in pain over 5 yrs. later.
