Patient Comments (6)
in Beaufort, SC |
One of the most condescending doctors I have ever gone to. I prefer care from someone I am comfortable with, and who treats patients with an element of human kindness & respect. He does not fit the bill. Ironically, since I stopped going to him, I personally have had conversations with 5 other people who say the same thing about him. Lowcountry Medical - you may wish to address this, as it appears not to be an isolated incident!

Doesn't listen well and is easily threatened. Condescending and dismissive. Not interested in patients participating in their own care.
Angier, NC |
No considered real patient care. Only cares about billing. The worst DR. I have ever had.

He took care of my mom when she had a heart attack in the middle of the night. Saved her, we are so great ful for him
in Beaufort, SC |
Very rude and condensending. The hospital made the follow-up and he proceeded to ask why was I there. Then proceeded to tell me to see my primary which my primary and hospitalists said to follow-up with him about my condition. Went to see another Cardiologist was diagnosed correctly and treated with respect. Avoid this Dr at all costs!

He is rude, condescending and makes you feel like an idiot. Did not return calls to explain to spouse what was going on. The hospital staff have given him the title of Doctor with Bedpan Manners, he is a good clinician but has no bedside manner. He needs to go back to medical school and learn about bedside manner and communication!
