Nurse review

My family has been seeing him for years and he has always provided excellent care to us. He has a great bedside manner. after reading the above comments I am concerned that folks expect unlimited access for "TOTAL BODY" attention in one patient visit. I compare this to going to the grocery store and only paying for the first item in your cart and expecting the rest for free imply because "it's the same trip". People expect so very much from their healthcare providers, often for free

I like Dr. David, but don't really feel as though he cares much about me, or any of his patients. My husband and I both see him, and both have problems with the Dr's unwillingness to work with us on knocking out multiple symptoms in one visit, and a blatant misdiagnosis last month.

The worst doctor in the world!

I would not recommend this doctor to anybody! He is very uncaring, rude, mean, unsympathetic, impolite, and inconsiderate. I was completely humiliated and embarrassed by him. He will not listen to anything you have to say. He has a terrible attitude and very degrading way of talking to patients. He does not spend hardly anytime with you and the time he does spend is him sitting in a chair on his PC, never making eye contact with the patient. My experience with him was absolutely terrible!!!
