Very considerable and caring. He takes his time with all his patients making sure that they understand what is going on with condition. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

The nurses are extremely rude. It seems like if you want to work at this office then you have to have a degree in treating people like garbage! I will be finding another Dr after my next injections which will NOT be performed at this location. The PA, Julia, is unreliable and apparently not very intelligent for having a degree. She provided me with instructions outside of office policy, I found out later, and is now declining what she said. Because of this, I may lose my job and my home!

All he wants is money. He doesn't care about patient care. This practice is a Pill Mill. It's a scam. BEWARE!!! They will charge A LOT of things that you don't need and that they know your insurance won't pay for. Then they will bill you for it. I have plates in my back from a broken back but must have a $320 urine test (that my Insurance company says is not medically necessary) that my insurance won't pay for. Then they want you to come EVERY month to have the urine test to get your meds.

Because I have been a patience of his for over 7 years, and he deeply cares about you. He really want to help, but sometimes the Medical People and I can say other Doctors doing the wrong thing, makes it hard for his patience. He wants you to have the right medications but with the number of people out there just trying to make money and not caring about their patience's well it put him and the other doctor's there in a bad position. But I love him so much.
