Great experience. Great doctor! Took all of the time necessary to help me and made me feel very comfortable. When I expressed my concern with pain medications he provided me with some natural options.

Outstanding physician. Compassionate, considerate, an expert in his field. Gives patient a lot of attention and speaks in real language. Great sense of humor. Very accessible and outstanding follow through. Must NEVER retire. Keeps me going. Aware of dietary and lifestyle-based treatment,; not just a drug shiller.

Was recommended by my physician. I was surprised at the office conditions. It seems as it hasn't been touched since the 70's. Long wait time to be seen and didn't feel like the doctor spent enough time and I was just another patient of the day. No follow up after testing by him or staff.
