Not good. Everything seemed to revolve around MONEY. Too many discrepancies with regards to deductibles, insurance and co-pays. They wanted to take a ridiculous amount of money up front without actually calling insurance. In addition, was threatened by front office (while at the office) that if I decided to go home instead if staying for appt that I would still be billed for an office visit. It's sad when staff experience affects review b/c the Dr. was kind but will never return or recommend.

This was my first visit. He did a thorough examination of my feet and noted every little detail. This was a good start. However, prior to departing, he attempted to sell me numerous foot products in which you can buy like products OTC. He also wanted to schedule me to be cast for orthotics in his office vs, going through my Ins carrier which would have cost me mega bucks and made mega bucks for himself instead. Impression: bottom line; money over patient care.........

I would not use this doctor. I attempted to do a first visit with him and ended up walking out of the office after sitting in the waiting room/examination room for over an hour! The ladies at the front desk were very nice, but the practice obviously has issues with scheduling and patient management. There are enough other options in the area that this guy is not worth waiting on.
