He loves money not your time or cost

He cares more about his money than your time/health and cost. The first lie, he said my insurance required a second ultrasound. His staff said he wanted to see if another vein qualified. So basically he lied and it cost me extra money. I had 5 veins that qualified for EVLT. He was going to do one vein per day with an ultrasound the next day. He basically takes 1 vein and splits it over days (top of leg, bottom of leg) rather than doing the entire vein at once. So I was going to have 10 appts total rather than the 4 another dr did (right leg, ultrasound, left leg, ultrasound). That would have cost a fortune and been very inconvenient. Luckily, my mom had this done so I knew they were supposed to do an entire leg at once vs breaking it apart. DO NOT TRUST this man.

Outstanding Doctor

Concerned and caring, interested in your well being not just getting you in and out of the office. Explains things in terms a non medical person can understand. I would recommend him to anyone needing a cardiologist.
