November 13th, 2013Visit review
Went for a normal visit to handle a common cold. He was short with me. Condescending. It's like he thought I was a young guy trying to score prescription drugs. Nah, was jus tired oh hacking and coughing. Basically spent less than 5 minutes with me. And then jus walked out with no thanks. Get sick doc...go home. Take care of yourself. And get an attitude change while you're chillin . Patients, ditch this jerk and find someone with some humility.

July 12th, 2013I do not recommend this Dr
In a search to find a general physician I found him through Renown's website. The short of it is that he did not seemed concerned with my health issues and acted I was a number. I would not recommend him nor will I go back

July 3rd, 2013Agree w/ the Rest of the Comments Regarding This Doctor
The doctor does come across as talking down to experience and portraying the attitude of "I'm experienced and you are not" and the way the doctor presents himself is enough to anger any patient that is not prepared for his patient. Regardless I was seeking a second opinion initial lab work I had done through a St. Mary's Health Plans clinic and this doctor ordered the right amount of tests including one I requested to put me at ease. To be honest, I really don't trust today's doctors and medical staff that are out there and seems like you get your share of bad staff wherever you go. First at the St. Mary's Clinic with the clinic staff losing my history/file after the first visit as they were changing over systems and now I'm presented with this doctor which does throw up some red flags as to how far I was to progress. The only thing I'm not doing is going through their Renown labs because my insurance benefits are more effective using Labcorp and at least Labcorp will send me my results online and I can get a better ideal if there are any real issues to worry about. Depending on the lab results I may actually rule out a follow up visit and save myself another visit or just find myself another PCP in my network. Has to be a doctor out there with a better attitude that is not in a rush to get you in and out the door or look at you negatively because you are overweight. Honestly over the years, I have really lost faith in the U.S. medical field and just starting to go down an herbal path more and more.
April 27th, 2013worst dr visit ever not at all helpful
After 4 years of not being able to go to a dr I finally get to see a physician and i get this jerk. I came in telling him that its been years since ive seen anyone and he never ordered any labs or tests. I also told him about a numb spot on my back that is extremly painful that ive had for about a year and his only answer was "its just something you will probably have to deal with from now on, that im young and could deal with it" his exact words verbatim.I will be filing a complaint to renown also.
