I think he's one of the best physician's I've ever had. He takes time with me, listens to my questions, gives me good feedback, and is personable. His approach is conservative from a drug standpoint which is something that I appreciate. I will be very unhappy when he retires because it's...more

he no longer listens to his patients, derisive of other medical professions and professionals, will not look at or consider/acknowledge test and lab results, (x-ray MRI CAT) that are contrary to his opinion.

Generally friendly, however, if you disagree with his medical opinion he becomes short and curt. Very insistent in patient trying medication after medication,
