The Doctor himself is smart and educated. The staff, however has got to be the WORST EVER! Do not recommend due to staff incompetence!

I liked the doctor but the staff seemed aggressively competitive. Don't know what's going on there... Also tough to get a hold of someone for a question and the staff didn't bother to explain anything about what to expect for scheduling surgery.
