Saw him for a few years the switched to Dr. Marmagkiolis. Very biased against overweight people. Kind of the talk-of-the-town on this. Even nurses will roll their eyes and apologize or tell you their horror stories about his manners especially to overweight clients.

I chose this egotistical SOB because he was closer than Springfield. He enjoys being a politician and he certainly has the personality. Last visit with him he was once more (loudly) harping about my weight despite the fact I had dropped 30 pounds. He was the same in public - I had seen him at a local restaurant loudly criticizing the waitress about her weight. No wonder he gets poor service. Whatever you send out into the world is sent back to you times 3. I might feel sorry for him, but he really is a pompous jerk.I'm sure at one time he was taught proper social skills, but now he is so sorely lacking he won't even coordinate with other doctors.

I was told he was the Best Dr. I have no doubt about his clinical skills - I felt I was in good hands with him technically. But...I had to wait 8 hours for him to see me after the procedure because he was "doing inventory." Fed up, I decided to check myself out. When I approached the nurse's station, there he was bragging to a pretty nurse about how fast he had inserted my heart catheter. I agree with one of the other reviewers. This guy has no social skills and an ego bigger than his brain.
