We were not happy with him at all. This doctor goes through constant staff turn overs. Making appointments are extremely hard. His staff are not experienced. Basically, if you want to trash your money go to cedars and see this doctor.

He is knowledgeable and talks to you about your health condition. Always calls the next day with lab results. He actually makes the call. Easy to talk to.
