In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.

ShamPAIN

I went to this doctor for about 10 or 11 years. He is an intelligent man, however, he prescribes too many unnecessary drugs and treatments. Many of these treatments were downright painful.

He didn't show

Well so after waiting four months for an appointment with this guy he just didn't show up. I'm beyond words with how disrespectful that is, i had to take four hours off of work..I've had hives since May, it's now Nov, and he just doesn't show up! I swear I'm just amazed at how little he obviously cares about the wellbeing of his patients. He needs to shut down his practice..NOW. Don't waste your time and schedule an appointment with this man, he won't show up. Nurse said he's been in three times this year.

Very disappointed

I had an appointment today that I scheduled almost a month and a half ago. It was canceled about 5 hours before I was to come in and to my disappointment, the staff I interacted with wasn't apologetic for the inconvenience. Additionally, I wasn't accommodated in any way in trying to make a new appointment other than waiting another month and a half (until June) for a rescheduled appointment. At this point I will be looking into a new allergist as this was my first impression of the office. And sadly, when any colleagues or friends ask about my experience, this will be what I have to share.

this guy should retrire or tell his patients he is closing his practice

they tell you if you cancel an appointment on short notice they will charge you $50 but it is OK for them to cancel on you............like three times in a row. Needless to say I'm looking for a new allergist .

good luck!

The doctor ended up cancelling two appointments with less than an hr notice. By the time we got the call I had already driven the hour it takes us to get to his office and of course taken my child out of school to bring her there. We are not rescheduling.. But the office staff were courteous!
