Never visit him

I wish I could gave no start to this doctor. He diagnosed me with Thyroid and he was giving me 4 times dose. He never gave me enough time for my questions, though it was shocking and surprising for me to digest thyroid issue. I started getting joint pains and he asked me to prescribe ibuprofen. He treats Indians like pigs. I would never go to him and never recommend anyone to see him. My another friend also hated him.

His rudeness and incivility were inexcusable.

He was very rude and did not address the reason I came in for the appointment. He has poor bedside manner and lacked any sense of politeness while speaking with me. I left the appointment feeling embarrassed, belittled and my issue was unresolved. His rudeness and incivility were inexcusable. I would not recommend him and I will not return.

They want to charge $10 for 3 pages of office notes even though the contract they have with my health insurance specifically prohibits it. Not a place I would recommend visiting. Wonder what else they do to make a few extra bucks?

One Star

I wouldn't recommend this physician to anyone. He doesn't listen and if he doesn't immediately know what you have, he'll string you along with the belief that he might be able to figure it out. Then he won't figure it out.
