I've been seeing him for chronic pain for 2+ years. At first I put up with the all-day wait and the rude and unprofessional staff because I thought he really wants to help me figure out how to get better. I'm not sure I believe that any longer. He has pressured me into a medication I don't want due to its addictive nature. I've been on a regimen that's been working, but he tries to change things every month. His staff is consistently unprofessional and unconcerned with their work and patients.

I believe they over book themselves. Each time I come for my scheduled appointments I usually don't get seen until after 5-7 hours later. This is ridiculous. I have been there more than six times. Myself and other patients complains of such long waits. Most of us patients will let each other what time we got there and so forth. My appt. was for 3 and I did not leave the office until after 9 pm and there were still 5 more patients waiting in the lobby room. This is so sad and unprofessional.
