Patient Comments (2)
in Auburn, WA |
I felt as if I was treated as a number. He wouldn't thoroughly answer my questions, the appointments were rushed-he wanted me in and out to move on to the next patient. (This wasn't just a one time occurrence) and the education about my surgery was very little. He was arrogant. He seemed like he's ready to retire and is only in this for the money at this point. I certainly would not recommend him to any of my family and friends.

If you have a of time to wait the you will be fine.Great Doctor but his staff at Bonney Lake is rather rude. Surgery times in Auburn may change so be aware to clear your schedule for the day.
