Very condescending. Talked poorly about 3 other doctors. Didn't want to hear about what has or hasn't worked for my migraines. He wrote me a script that was not covered by insurance and cost $3400.

Very arrogant and condescending. Belittles you and suggests your symptoms are not possible. Questions your treatments with other Drs. I left both times feeling beat up mentally. Choose another competent caring Dr, you will be glad you did. I will not return.

Very arrogant. Made me feel stupid when asking a question. Made me feel like he is better than you.
