Worst possible office staff, they are not polite, friendly or helpful. They are rude and short with patients. The front desk attendant Martha hung up on me twice. They don't answer the phones, tried reaching out to them 3 days. If they are understaffed they need to hire more people. Not organized one bit, they turned away my 90 year old aunt away because of their office errors and on the same day put my mother to wait in an A/C room when she complained they forgot about her. Horrible experience!

I don't even give him a star. Poor bed side manner, terrible communication and follow up care after surgery . Does not call pts, hospital and other drs calls. Do not recommend this surgeon at all, you or loved one will not get good or even fair medical treatment. Please find another surgeon.
