Patient Comments (2)

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...more
