No good doctor. He has lousy bedside manners. I am worse than when I went to see him. I went to see him for back pain and he kept doing more and more injections. They made me worse. Kept pushing narocotics at me even though I told him I did not want them.

He is a Decent Person in my situation and always treated me fair and did what he said after my 23rd Major Spine Surgery on my Lumbar Spine this past October 9th, 2014. As of January 1st, 2016 he relocated to Huntsville, Alabama and is working with ALL Double Board Certified Pain Specialist at : Tennessee Valley Pain Consu
