Patient Comments (2)

Nastiest, dirtiest office I have EVER BEEN TO. I can't believe people actually let this doctor treat them! He is in the medical field for the money only! He admitted to overbooking patients to make up the ones that don't show up! He said that he would go broke if he didn't overbook! My appointment...more
