What a wonderful and thorough Doctor. With a chest scan he found a large cancerous tumor on my kidney! Another time, he also found a tumor on my lung and stressed the importance of taking care of things quickly. I owe my life to this man....as a 9/11 responder, I feel comfortable with him and his decisions, it's for the patient not for the money.

I went In with stabbing chest and rib pain, he tells me it sounds like pleurisy and sends me on my way. The pain gets worse so I go back 2 days later. He comes out and says " I can't see u everyday, insurance will come after me" it was only the 2nd time I've seen him in many mnths. Then I told him I was still in pain and rite away he insults me by saying "I can't give u narcotics" insinuating that I was drug seeking. I told him that I just wanted antibiotics to treat the condition. What a jerk

I was sent for a CT scan of my chest. He received a copy of the report, handed it to me and told me it was Normal! I had a 4 cm. mass under the breastbone. It was right there in black and white. Had I not went to another specialist, I would have never known I had cancer. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy!
