      Smithsburg, Md |
      Awful. Does not care about patient, only $. No bedside manner, talks in circles. Will not give test result over the phone because he won't get his copayment. Sells you things you don't need. Go in for result, told I need another test. i have had extreme pain iin my leg since the vein test was done. Office would not check with my insurance about leg stockings because I did not make a follow up. Insurance companies are losing money on this guy. Worried about my health since seeing him. 0 ??

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
