I am totally appalled that anyone would rate this doctor under a 5 he is a very busy man that goes over and above for his patience's. I myself have seen him and he is very direct as to what he can and can not do for you. I have seen family members insult him when he is speaking and he has said hello to them and ask their name. He is kind and let them speak. I have taken my father to him. He and associate Dr Alexander made it clear to me they could not remove an IVC filter I had and sent me to a Very Good Dr. in Chicago IL. It saved my life. That's an excellent team. My filter had penetrted the walls of my IVC vein. Thank you.
