Best Vascular Surgeon hands down. Sure the office appts. are slow but that is what comes with someone so respected. My life has been in his capable hands a few times and I wish that I could still use him but I live in Indiana and the Insurance situation is horrible between states. I am TERRIFIED with the thought of finding a new Doctor!

Competent surgeon but terrible office service! Never have had an appointment where everyone in the office waited at least an 1 1/2 hour beyond the scheduled appointment time! Today, everyone had to wait additional time while he had a meeting!
