DITTO Arrogant, Rude, not compassionate

He strolled into the room and asked what was wrong. Did you not bother to read my chart? Never introduced himself. Started reeling off lingo about disc 4,5,6 etc. Nothing to show me what he was referring to. Isn't this what you do? Shouldn't you have some photos, models etc...he begrudgingly, went into the hall and came back with a model. Just a BAD experience. Did not seem to care in the least. I would NEVER go back and want my $ back as well!

Horrible experience!!

From the moment he walked in the room I could sense his arrogance and absolute lack of compassion!! I was referred to him by OB I was 13weeks pregnant and had been having severe sciatic nerve pain. He walked in the room proceeded to ask what's going on, with his back turned to me never looking at me. Then tells me well there's really not much we can do for you since you're pregnant. I sensed that I was a waste of his time to him but him and his office wasted my time. Why did they even book my appt when I explained everything to them on the phone and the girl even told me they have to run the information by the dr before booking. So knowing I'm pregnant and they can't do anything for me they still book my appt? I mean could he have not at the very least showed me some stretches to do that would help?! I would never recommend him to anyone. Who cares about experience when a Dr. lacks any compassion or care toward patients. And just wants to steal money.

Great doctor who thinks about the whole body. My daughter was struggling with an injured back and he helped find the cause. He cared about the cause and worked with us instead of simply perscribing meds.
