Patient Comments (2)
Huntsville, AL |
Poor communication...he does not fully answer questions. Often when asked one, instead of responding, he asks why do you ask that. Expect to wait at appointments. Oh, and how about waiting 30 minutes before going back to the exam room, then waiting a very long time in the exam room only to find out he has left for lunch??? When nurses and home health care providers try to reach him, they shared that he did not return calls in a timely manner. He doesn't return phone calls promptly.

Always plan to wait at least an hour past appointment time to be seen. No direct eye contact.Fairly knowledgeable.
