Very rude to my mother when she broke her shoulder: He would also make her wait for three hours in his office. We would sit in the rooms and listen to him shoot the breeze with staff and other patients about landscaping and trips. He would finally see my mother and he was very short with her and rushed her. If she asked questions, he would belittle her. I would never recommend him. There are plenty of nice doctors out there, he is not one of them.

Jane Doe in Norman, OK – Jul 29, 2016
Although I'm sure he is a skilled surgeon, his arrogance and bullheadedness completely discount that. He completely ignored increasing pain and other indications of infection, even chastised me like a child for complaining, and I almost lost my foot. Thank goodness I finally consulted another surgeon.

Lucky in Oklahoma City, OK – Jul 09, 2016
I guess his skill as a surgeon are very good and he has done 3 surgeries on me with great results. However, his patient skill are inadequate, which border on sarcasm and rudeness. His behavior deteriorated after first surgery, so I won't go back. I have arthritis and need too many surgeries, but there are nicer doctors around. I am very nice person, who didn't deserve to be mistreated.
