He acts like your problem is not important with no empathy. The paperwork for disability is somehow beneath him im guessing since we are now going on a month without a paycheck. He will put you back to work with no regards for what you do or how much pt you get. I would never recommend him to anyone!

He and his staff have always treated me well. I go in, talk about what I need or what my options are, and they make sure I leave feeling better than when I came in.
in Independence, MO |
Dr. Ray is very attentive and listens to what I have to say. His bed side manner is incredible. I think he is an incredible doctor!! As far as appointments go, I have no issues. I have more problems with my insurance approving procedures.
