So I will admit I was nervous going into this appointment because of the reviews on here, however, he is simply amazing. He is a firm doctor who wants to take care of you, so if you aren't letting him or aren't getting your way then that's why you left a bad review. He was so kind and helpful. He asked me if I had enough of the pain and I am 100% sure I am done with the pain. He explained everything perfectly and told me he would take good care of me. He went to med school we didn't! I trust him

Staff were not friendly. We were told we needed in interpreter at our visit. We got there and there was no interpreter. Which was fine since I was able to interpret. But when there was a single word that I was not able to translate they took it to another level saying that's why we needed someone. Even though I knew that with most interpreters they would not have been able to translate some things right. We were not at fault when they requested for someone and they never showed.

I am in SHOCK from my visit. He was hostile towards me from the moment I shook his hand. He said there was nothing wrong with me and that I needed to get off all pain meds. He said I should use advil. I have an MRI that shows two tears in my L4:L5 & L5:S1. I have been out of work for two weeks and I'm really worried about my family! STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR!
