The team was Very nice. However, I was not impressed with the Dr. He had no bed side manner came in looked at X-ray. Did not even introduce himself. Explain his thoughts on my child's situation nothing! Just looked at x ray and asked some one to cast it. And we had to wait an hour in the waiting room after paperwork. No apologies it was as of that was the norm. Hopefully, all goes well when the splint comes off and hopefully this does not happen again. In the event it does we will go elsewhere.
The staff is very friendly. Unfortunately the appointment with my daughter didn't go well. Our pediatrician referred us to him for a diagnosis, so I went in thinking he would be the best. We were barely acknowledged, he coldly gave us a diagnosis, and advised surgery on my toddlers feet. When I asked if there were other options, he acted like I had insulted him and should know better. I left very concerned and upset. After some research I discovered that surgery is not and should not have been recommended for my child. I found another Dr that could help us with a treatment plan appropriate for her age. It's working to correct the problem.
He is very arrogant, very rude and all around hateful. Will belittle you and your child, is horribly hateful to his staff. His nurses apologized for him several times, and said this is his normal attitude and said I actually caught him on a "good day" He is very rough during his exams, and seems very agitated if the child cries in pain. Not a good type of person to be dealing with children and concerned patients. He also, continually talked on his cell while we were in the exam room, and not business calls either, they were all 3 personal calls. I felt like we couldn't finish a sentence without another phone call
