Excellent doctor

Amazing doctor with an excellent facility would definitely recommend!

If I could select no stars I would. No compassion, no communication. He told me he found a tumor in my Father in front the entire waiting room. He gave me no information about the procedure and when I asked questions he acted like I was being unreasonable. Even after he saw my Father the day after his surgery, he relayed the tumor was cancerous as though he were talking about the weather and STILL had no information about the surgery the day prior. Run from him and run from Dr Hosp at Ren.
Right to the point, no fooling around, but answered all questions to be sure of what I wanted.

This Doctor is 73 years old!! I think he is ok but he does not communicate enough information as to the various treatments for my prostrate cancer. He seems to tell you the minimum amount of information and nothing more. I would like a doc that is younger and more than likely is up on the latest treatments.

Horrible experience!!! My 90 year old father-in-law waited 3 hours and 30 minutes to get the attention he needed, all while laying in a stretcher out in the hall. No compassion whatsoever! Kindness and courtesy seems to be in short supply in this office!
