Arrogant and wishy-washy!

Workmans comp doctors stick together! This doctor cannot stand by his professional opinion. He needs to play the wait and see game as to what the other workmans comp doctor has to say. Of course, if one says yes and the other says no.....guess what? You as the patient with the work injury are screwed! Uphill battle that gets harder to climb because of the severe pain that gets worse every day!

Do Not Go There

Do not go there. Was misdiagnosed for a whole year in severe pain. Treated like a pill seeker when my neck was fractured and other severe problems. I thought it was depression. Depression causes pain. Psychiatrist loaded me up with psy meds that were not needed. The smerk on that bastards face when I asked for something just to sleep. Medication complaints on notes. Yeah jerk compression on nerves, my neck didn't heal right. Now I'm a true mess. Thanks for ruining my life. Not only did you affect mine the others around me. I was an active executive now I'm a welfare case that has to fix the mess you misdiagnosed. Treat animals jerk they don't catch on to the smerks and rude comments. Are you going to pay the shrink bill I didn't need?????? Are you gonna buy me a new bed that's ruined??? I'm madder than a bobcat on a hot plate. Oh how about loss income?? I was offered a good job that I could not do. Thanks SMERK

Animals get more respect

If you got good insurance I would highly reccomend your options. When a doctor looks at you makes rude remarks about your looks and laughs when you ask something serious its time to get out of there. I left crying. Thinking I was just emotional because of my injuries I went back. Bad move. He's really a jerk. Unless your a jock or have a decent income your crap. My friend goes to him and she says he's wonderful. She also was a local model. I was treated like garbage. I wouldn't send my cat there. I was dressed nice was pleasant to him and he literally laughed in my face. I felt like I was in high school and ran into the mean bully. I went to another doctor and I'm so happy I did. I never doctor jumped until then. Im not being sensitive he's really rude. The staff is great, but they can't treat you... Unfortunately

Unprofessional, denies patient's rights

he can not communicate with patients and is very evasive when questions are asked. He is very much on the defensive and often contracts what he said on previous visits. Don't trust him!
