Would not recommend - wishy washy on diagnosis. Wouldn't make a decision. Went to for 2nd opinion. Would not want him to do surgery - if he is that unsure of himself!

Highly recommend !!!!!

by far the best bedside manner I have seen by a md. His pa was awesome as well. Had to do an emergent surgery to avoid the risk of losing my sensation to my leg and never getting it back. I would highly recommend him hands down. It was a true honor being one of his patients. Absolutely no negative things to say about him. And to show you his true amount of caring, I had never even met him before and not only did he come in to see me on his day off, he also came in and did my surgery on his weekend off. Thanks alot doc. All I could give you was 5 stars and that's only because that's all there were to choose from.

One Star

discharged me from the hospital after a triple cervical discectomy on Lortab 7.5and stated I did not need anything else. Also said he sends his patients home the next day after this type of surgery. Called him the night of my disharge to tell him Lortab was not working for my pain and he said too bad, I could go to the ER if I wanted. Very incompassionate and rude telling me I should not be in much pain after having three discs removed, nerves in spine decompressed, and a cadaver bone inserted with three plates and eight screws. Would not use this doctor for surgergy if you want adequate pain control.
