He’s a dear friends primary dr. Has blown her off numerous times saying nothing wrong. After recent trip to ER, still said doesn’t need to see her. If you don’t care about your patients you need to retire.

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.
