Office staff

They office staff is lacking in personal skills. Rude, uncaring and act like soldiers who will not allow your call go to the person it needs to go too. IE. dr nurse . My advice find another dr who has better office staff. They need to be fired or have training.

Former Patient

Be very careful when using his PA during surgeries. Most insurance companies will not pay for a PA during surgeries. The physician should use another physician when operating as required by their contract. However, they will use the PA in order to receive a higher amount. Basically, they do not want to operate on what was agreed withconcerning insurance companies contracts. However, they will turn the PA in as an Assistant Surgeon which will be denied.
