Came to doctor rho for a broken hand and torn ligament in wrist. I saw him a total of 3 times. The amount of time he spent couldn't have totaled more than 4 mins. he didn't even examine my wrist on any of the follow ups. Just kept telling me to come back in a few weeks never telling me a prognosis.. left me completely in the dark and would walk out before I could ask any questions. Hands down worst doctor I ever been to. And I've been to a lot in my life. Canceled my next appointment with him

Horrible experience, very impersonal. Saw me for less than 3 minutes. Did not advise anything, just did xray and ordered mri. after MRI report came, failed to call me after 3 messages. Not even, if I need to take anti-inflammatory meds or ice the injury. He is in the wrong business. He should not be in the caring business.
