I had 3 broken metatarsals, nose and cheek after a motor cycle wreak. Said he'd send rx to pharmacy for the pain. Never did.That was a fri. 2 weeks later his office calls and said he wouldnt perscribe any thing for papain.It was excruciating to chew food and sleep for weeks. Work release pape. 8 weeks later an xray was taken in his office for follow up. He replied,"Oh i can clearly see where the breaks are." He offered pain meds 8wks later. At this point none were needed. Totally dissatisfied

The Doctor is excellent the billing and L&I is not well handled. But his skill knowledge and ability has offset any down side and hassles with the billing in his staff. Tim L.

This dr was a No Show for my surgery and I got a bill? I got 5 pressure sores and a full leg cast for 6 months because he was a No Show. Now I'm getting collection letters. Why would they bill me ???
