Wreckless with clear determination to stick to his path no matter what. Gastly recovery and explosive incompetence. How does Avera let him continue practicing?!?!

Made a surgical error and failed to correct the issue in time resulting in the death of a family member. Arrogant and incompetent. I would never let him near me or someone I love.

He accommodated our young daughter being present after the exam. All questions were well, but briefly answered. Surgery results seem excellent.
