Wait time is horrid but he’s actually a great doctor and surgeon. He’s handled I think 4 broken hands for me. All healed beautifully.

My daughter injured herself over a holiday weekend. Immediately Tuesday when i called they fit us in. They accommodated her surgery with her college return and was kind enough to think outside the box and do her follow up 'electronically'. They were extremely accommodating. The procedure went well. Yes he was late, No he wasn't rude. When we were seen he spent the amount of time required to conduct a thorough visit. We felt better about the wait knowing he spent ample time with everyone!!!

He wastes your time and he is highly disrespectful to his patients. He comes in late, expects you to be there before your scheduled time. When he is late, he takes it out on the patient. I have not felt so humiliated by a doctor. He is a failure when we does not treat the patient with care and respect that the patient deserves. I left totally distraught and upset. He clearly needs to retire, now before he hurts someone badly. The wait time is 2 hours.

Waited 1 hour 10 mins to be told he was running a hour and half behind. Asked how long that was going to take and received I'm sorry and don't know. Staff is rude and don't answer your questions. Second time there and combined wait time over three hours.

Tried for months and months to get an appointment over, but they just kept saying that they'd get back to me. I just wanted a second opinion. I sent them all my records three different times. Never did see him.
