Terrible Doctor would not recommend doesn't take pain patients seriously, doesn't know what he's talking about, not knowledgable about medications, will try to give you cookie cutter diagnosis without looking into the real problem or cause or your pain. would not reccomend to anyone. gross dirty office, long wait times, lots of odd patients there for reasons unknown? short office visits place is run in a odd way... don't waste your time with this flaky old unreliable "doctor"
