Been seeing him since December 2020. Absolutely love seeing him. He is the first doctor to actually listen to me. Got my diagnosis (finally after years! of trying with other doctors and being treated like I'm crazy) and we've been working on treatments and setting goals/lifestyle changes. Highly reccomend! He's always polite and I've never left the office feeling like it was a waste of time.

This guy is so full of hubris you can't really tell him what's wrong with you. I ended up having SMA surgery because of his "diagnosis" and it was a completely unnecessary procedure. Seriously, do not go to see this man. He is a trash medical provider and will offer absolutely no help. In fact he might hurt you like he did me. I got sliced open stem to stern for no reason at all, per his "diagnosis". Then he says "oh isn't that great, there is nothing wrong!" like his misdiagnosis, unnecessary surgery, and the fact that I still have all the same problems is a good thing. Trash medical provider, arrogant rich boy. Avoid him at all expense.

Don't bother. He won't. A lot of eyes closed arrogant nodding, had to twist his arm to get an MRI. When it comes back as something rare and serious he can't be bothered to pick up the phone. Garbage medical care. He got his colonoscopy endoscope money for procedures I didn't need, but when it turned out to be something serious he wasn't interested in talking to me.
