THE ABSOLUTE WORST “DR.” IN THE STATE! I had the unfortunate encounter when I was admitted into the emergency room and he was appointed to be my surgeon. It was the worst experience of my life. He could not be more unprofessional. NO communication from him or his office after the surgery. He will extort you for money by requiring visits that are not needed. He is solely focused on himself. Does not stick to his appointment times. HE IS ALWAYS LATE. He doesn’t even try to hide that he only cares about 1 thing - collecting your money. He does not take any insurance and makes you pay out of pocket $300 to see him for 10 minutes. STAY AWAY from this jerk!
