Good MD, but spends too much time in exam room typing info in his laptop and not enough doing a truly examining patient. Exam is primarily questions , listening to heart, sometimes listening to chest, weight, BP. In many cases he will suggest a specialist rather than taking a fist cut at solution and not sure if that is good but prior MD was not as fast doing that. He also is not a believer in more than about one blood test per year, which may or may not be a good idea . Overall, a good MD.
Terrible terrible terrible rude makes you feel like two cents for calling for help and says basically call your doctor and don't bother me unless it's life or death on the weekends it can wait till Monday not cool. If I have to do my job on the weekend so do you.
