June 25th, 2015Unprofessional/ Vulgar behavior
Doctor yelled and cussed in front of my children (ages 13,5,2) because I asked for my daughter's MRI report and inquired about her pain. Daughter has pain with fracture in foot, doctor declares no cast needed and referred to PT??!!! Staff and Doctor refused to give medical records! Don't waste your time, doctor completely disregarding our concerns and staff ignored the terrible behavior of the doctor when I made a complaint for his cussing in front of my kids!

October 21st, 2013NEVER PUT YOUR HEALTH IN HIS HANDS!
He has a GOD complex.If you questions options other than surgery he is furious.Refused on two occasions to respond to calls after surgery.GET A 2ND OPINION before allowing this man to perform surgery! He failed to advise limitations after surgery OR possible alternatives to ISOLATE actual source of pain. He is unbelievable in his attitude treatment. I pray ONE person reads this and is wise enough to find someone who is willing to explain ALL details,future limitations and LISTENS to a patient.

He may once have been good but always had filthy language & poor bedside manner. Claims phys.therapy after hip replacement not necessary but his phys. asst. stated therapy always required. Refuses to listen,has rude condescending attitude and my pain is WORSE after surgery. I hope anyone considering consultation@his office will go elsewhere or get second opinion.
August 16th, 2013bedside manner
although he may be a good doctor, he is also very rude and unforthcoming with any info about your diagnosis. On the advice of a nurse I asked the doctor pre-surgery about pain meds for post surgery. He took the attitude that I was a druggie and in a very loud voice said "This is what you're getting and that's all your getting! What kind of narcotics are you taking!?" I'm an older woman who doesn't even like taking an aspirin and was highly insulted with his attitude. He didn't stop in to see me or speak with me how the surgery went so I guess I will assume everything is okay. Very rude and unfeeling man. He needs to remember that although he may do surgery everyday, to his patients (at least this one) it is a very scary prospect and deserve to be treated with kindness and respect.
