Not organized

I would not recommend. He read my chart, then confused me with a new patient when I had been there multiple times. He seemed distracted most time, made me feel like a number in an assembly line. His front desk staff is great and professional. They know their jobs and are extremely professional. His nurse/assistant is just the opposite, she is unprofessional, rude, and uninformed. She thinks she knows it all but was caught in multiple wrongs, and one outright lie. With his addled brain, and her assisting it is just a matter of time before they hurt someone permanently. I am glad I chose to go somewhere else after trying to make it work with his office. Please use caution when using him. Of course use your own judgement and form your own opinions but buyer beware.
