Terrible doctor! He makes jokes about patients as soon as he leaves a room. Doesn’t respect patient or thier privacy. We HEARD HIM LAUGHING and making fun of a fat patient in another room. When he saw us he turned around and walked down the hall real fast. I won’t use the awful names he was calling her and her husband. It could be considered abusive language. He also doesn’t respond when he is on call. We waited for over 2 hours for a call back so my wife could go to the ER. Beware of this MEAN and uncaring joke maker!!!!!
