Always seemed in a hurry and not thorough at all. Gave me a misdiagnosis and still charges full surgery fee after not performing the surgery and telling me it healed itself, but I have the same condition as before. Keep in mind he told me it could not heal on its own. NOTHING HAS CHANGED!! Absolute scam and terrible doctor. Now I have to go back to another doctor. Would not recommend to anyone!!
