I don't trust this doctor. His staff would give me unnecessary ultra-sounds prior to injections for a nueroma he was treating. When I asked the nurse if it was necessary she told me no, but "doctor" prefers to have one done prior to the injection. Then she flippantly stated, "Insurance covers it anyway." Um no, I was being charged each time. Of course he preferred me to have it done. Not because it was to my benefit, but because it benefited his pocket book. To make matters worse, billing is way behind so I didn't even catch what the crook was doing until I was well over $300 in debt to him. Stay away.

I fell for the seemingly good reviews but had a bad experience with the office. The physician is only in for a few hours a week and his staff (majority of whom are not medical professionals) do a great job of gate keeping. I had a simple procedure which in turn got infected. The post-surgery staff ignored me and told me everything looked "fine." It took two whole weeks for the office staff to take me seriously when I called with concerns. Then, I was given an antibiotics Rx over the phone with no follow up and no directions from the physician. Talk about attentive care. This office is eager to get clients in through the door but good luck getting to see the Doc if anything goes wrong.

I’m a 100% disabled vet & can’t cut my toenails. Drove to my appt in Jan. & was told I had no more authorizations from the VA & they wouldn’t see me. No advance notice or phone call. They said my approvals ran out last Oct. I said I had an appt. last Nov. with no problem. They said that was a mistake and blamed it on their billing office. They don’t have any system in their own office to alert them when it’s time to request new approvals for Veterans. They didn’t offer any solution(s) to me.

Had fibromas on bottom of my r foot, should have been an easy surgery. However closed with staples instead of sutures,causing adhesion which when he went to fix, damaged nerves. Now I have nerve pain along with inability to use most of my shoes. I saw a Ortho surgeon after 2nd surgery to see if these othererrors could be corrected. In his professional opinion he would not have cut into ball or heal of foot, would never use staples on foot, and that the 2nd surgery shld not have done for 6-7 mon
