Terrible doctor. My family member was scolded and he was mean to her. His patient ended up 2 times in the hospital due to his lack of giving her correct medicine. Donot go to this doctor!! Please for your own wellbeing or your loved ones.

After 2 years with this MD would NOT recommend for intractable epilepsy. This doctor doesn't care or keep up with new therapies. He would rather prescribe the drugs and send you on your way with cheshire cat smile. Had to remind him of drug levels, hepatic levels, frequent seizures.... This doctor is happy to write scripts for new drugs, beyond that........ Whatever....... Been at this for over 20 years and very disappointed. I cannot with good conscience recommend this doctor

This practice cleary doesn't care about their patients. While arguing with receptionist over whether or not I could self pay ( yes, pay CASH) for 10 straight minutes, she stated, I don't want you to be late for your appointment then walked back to let the nurse know that I had arrived and preceded to inform me that I had MISSED my appointment and would have to reschedule!! I am seriously beside myself! It took 6 months to get this appointment! Never again!
