One star is one too many. He is the worst Dr. I have ever seen. He allegedly treats neck and back pain. He didn't even provide a physical exam. My daughter was referred to him by Pediatrician for a curvature of her spine and chronic pain. He was condescending, rude and dismissive. Terrible bed...Read More

He operated on me and the pain did not go away. At my follow up he told me I should be pain free and I didn't need to see him again. He then walked out if the office. He put in my records I looked great and could do all activities pain free. He is an arrogant man with no regard for his patient.
