Very frustrating!

Makes patients wait in waiting room forever! Nurses are nice but he has no bedside manner. Was told all appointments are double booked. He makes more money and his patients suffer for it.

Terrible

He did surgery on my knee (meniscus). I woke up in extreme pain after the surgery and all he said was - facing the nurses - "she's just having an allergic reaction" and left!! The nurses debated on what to do and decided to put me under again and then give me other pain killers. He also kept reminding me before the surgery how badly it will hurt. That should have been my sign to get out. He has no social skills.
