Egg Harbor Township, NJ |
Very Knowledgeable physician! Excellent bedside manner!
Pleasantville, NJ |
IF you can get in to see him, you may like him. I found he was good at knowing me and my situation. BUT, be prepared to spend the day. I always got one of the first two appointments in the morning and NEVER got in less than an hour after my appointment. I saw him every three months for a year and couldn't take it any longer. My time is as valuable to me as his time is to him and if he can't get in on time and thinks it is okay to keep me waiting without excuse, then I can find another Dr.
