Best Doctor I have ever had and I've seen doctors world wide. Has literally saved my life three times through quick action and proper diagnosis. Recently rated best in state. Caring, thoughtful, and genuinely concerned about you as a patient. Although he always has a large case load of patients, he always makes you feel like you are the most important.

his staff is rude. He doesn't care about his patients he only cares about making a name for himself. He's been sued before but settles out of court. Won't live in the town he works in because he thinks he is above all of them. His wife is just as rude to you.
