This Dr does not know what he's doing. My wife injured her foot. We went to this "Doctor" 2 days later. He told not to take the pain medication or anti inflammatories urgent care prescribed her. He did X-rays and said it should heal within 2 weeks and to come back then for a follow up. 2 weeks later the foot is still bruised and very swollen. He ordered an MRI. We cancelled all future appointments and got a new doctor. The results showed 3 fractured bones, 3 torn tendons. Waste of time.

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 ??
