He didn't want to help solve my problems. I have a certain vitamin deficiency which my orthopedic believes is caused by a muscular disorder. The very first things this man said to me when he walked in the room was "you have big weight" and didn't want to focus on the vitamin issue or potential muscular issue. I know I'm large, but I also have thyroid issues and PCOS. Absolutely no help, very rude and unprofessional.

Extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful endocrinologist practicing in this area. Very attentive, skilled, and trustworthy. I've already recommended him to a couple of friends. Much more thorough than my ENT was, and I'm beyond grateful that my issue was caught early.
