My grandmother was admitted in the hospital at LGMC and this doctor was on call! I would NOT recommend this doctor to my worse enemy on their death bed! He has the worse bedside manners & answered his phone...not once..but thrice while "giving recommendations!" Then, he didn't even have the common courtesy to say excuse me! He never touched my grandmother neither did he seem one bit concerned! He also came into the room not knowing what was going on & asked very irrelevant questions! 0 stars!!

We were in LGMC for an emergency situation. He has absolutely the worse bedside manners and did not interact with the patient once. I wouldnt recommend him to my enemy, he is horrible.

Dr. was great, very patient and friendly. Staff on the other hand, very rude. Person who answers the phone calls on the other hand, extremely rude! When asked why they would not release my records to another physician, as I was upset to hear by my physician this office would not release my records, she could not professionally handle the conversation and hung up on me!!! Very unprofessional!
