I've been Dr. Addison's patient for over 15 years. He is caring, understanding and reassuring. He goes the extra mile to figure out issues and solutions. He's very well connected with his colleagues and has always recommended equally talented doctors. Because of his great bedside manner and willingness to listen and explain what is happening, his appointments do to run behind schedule but he's well worth the wait.

Receptionist

Dr Addison has been late to every single appointment I had to end it with him for the last 5 years he is not 5 minutes late but an hour to two hours late every time his staff and nurses think that this is acceptable and its common. This is unprofessional especially that this the hospital and he has five stars he diagnosed me with things that he never told me about until I looked at my paperwork he's making up diagnoses and symptoms that I never even experienced. Yes he will spend time with you after you wait three hour wait so if your time is precious for you this is not the right doctor he will be late even if you're in labor if he even shows up. I am African American and he definitely pics of all the stereotypes that against us and he reinforces it
