Was a patient of his at UC in West Chester Ohio. He is aragant! I have permanent left side weakness and pain. Put in my records I was a Hypochondriac and mental. I have a MRI that orthopedic doctor read; 4 herniated discs in lower back and 2 bulging disc with a bone spur on neck! Same MRI read by both doctors. Avoid at all cost!!! Not sure, but suspect fired from UC.

Terrible bedside manner. Does not show any empathy for his patients. Is defensive, rude and unhelpful. Would not recommend that anyone waste their time seeing this doctor.
