Have been to this practice many times with children and myself in sports that had injuries. Always had best treatment and Dr. experience. Daughter was in car accident, they gave appt. with this Dr. said he is who you see for back injuries. Basically only saw PA, said 2nd visit she didn't have CD- which she was never told to have, only had half Dr never came in said she would have to come back. Plus was sent for MRI on an area not needed. Dr. doesn't return phone calls as well. When finally told he would be reported, PA calls and then he gets on phone when told not whom we wanted to speak to, he freaks out does not let you say a word- RUDE, has higher than thou demeanor. Wouldn't recommend anyone to see him. When called office they said he rents space not affiliated. How would you know that when you call for an apt and that's who they say you see.

On my first visit to his office, I was placed into an examination room and then waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for him to come in and say that he saw my MRI and wanted a new one. (A three minute meeting.) I obtained a new MRI and on the next visit was again placed in an examination room and waited for two hours and 10 minutes. After trying alternative pain management injections which did not reduced my pain, he then told me that the only remaining option was spine surgery which I agreed to. His office then called me the following day and said the first available surgery date was in five months. I proceeded to have the pre surgery examinations and clearances by my internist and cardiologist within the 30 day window prior to the scheduled surgery date. At this point, I was in so much pain, I could hardly walk. Six days before the scheduled surgery date, his office called to tell me that he would not be available on that date and he was rescheduling my surgery for three months later. At this point, I found another most compassionate doctor that performed the successful surgery within one month of my first visit with him.
