Patient Comments (3)

Will not recommend, He is rude talks down to patients, vague in information about condition and health. I felt like i was wasting his time for even making an appointment.

I feel like a customer, rather than a patient. Explanations of my condition are lacking, even when pressed for information. I don't expect a prediction of the future, just some indication of what I may expect in the future. All I get is the comment, "I think we can keep you out of dialysis". ...more

Will never go back. He was very abrupt. I don't think he wants to talk to women. Does not listen.gives short no compassionate answers. My husband was in hospital and he came his room chewed him out and told him to tell his wife to stop calling his office
