His staff was rude. He wouldn't explain his diagnosis. I was given no treatment for the pain I had come in to be treated for. I ended up having to go to the ER for treatment. During a follow up with him, he spent about a minute in my room, saying he didn't know what was wrong. I ended up going to a different doctor that said he may have botched my endoscopy.

After a colonopstpy and endoscope, he told me and my wife ithat we would meet, get acquainted, review records, review past, review symptoms, get copy of cat scan. He instead referred me to his Physician Assistant who didn't tell me one thing that I didn't already know. Didn't have cat scan. I still haven't seen the good doctor. Waste of $250.00 for test and $35.00 copayment.
