More like a factory than a Doctor's office. Very long wait times in both waiting & examination room. Has a patient portal & encourage patients use it but is horrible in responding & refilling script request. Staff is rude and not caring. Very rushed after waiting all that time to see him. Calling him is virtually impossible. Staff protects him like the president & will never get a return call. Yet when I expressed my dissatisfaction, he did call me to fire me as a patient after 17 years

He cares greatly about his patients. He takes all the time necessary to fully explain the issues and answer any and all questions. He doesn't hesitate to send to other physicians when there is a truly unique problem and then he keeps in contact with that physician to know what is happening and will contact the patient to make sure the patient fully understands what is happening with the referred physician. He has been my doctor for well over 20 years and, quite simply, HE IS THE BEST.
