This guy is a QUACK. He misdiagnoses what you have. He talks to you like you're a dog; tells you where to stand; tells you to 'return to your seat'; tells you "you need to see a dentist" (when your teeth are perfectly fine, and, besides, dentistry is NOT what he's even qualified to comment on). His staff are equally bad news, ignorant and condescending. They will switch your appointment without even asking or telling you in advance (so you drive 80 miles each way for nothing to see this jerk). On a scale of 1 to 10, I give him, and his staff, a fat ZERO.

I would not recommend, started well, but

Very hard to understand due to his native language. He speaks very softly and its difficult to hear him. I was ok with that and just had to have him repeat a lot. But after his office becoming a Weight loss center, he became very pushy about that program and tried pushing me into a $1000 month expense for overpriced meal replacement food and the attitude of the office after I refused caused me to fire him as my doctor. I was losing weight slowly 75 lbs over about 9 months, so I didn't feel that I needed to be pushed into anything more drastic than what I was already doing. Only 1 doctor in that office is also a problem. They don't respect appointment times, multiple times I've waited a significant amount of time, worst being nearly 2.5 hours. I have a leave work for appointments so that's a huge issue.

Among the best in town!

Dr. Addy is one of the most caring and approachable doctors I have experienced. Very professional, highly intelligent, truly cares about all issues of health. He also treats those that other doctors turn away, people with addictions and fatal diseases like Hep C, without judgement and with excellent follow up. Dr. Addy is direct and honest, takes the time to listen to your concerns and explains the best course of action to better health and healing. Perhaps some judge him by skin color and accent, in which case I recommend you seek a specialist for those issues! I do believe Dr. Addy is over extended and would benefit from more support staff or a partner to share the patient load. I always have his full attention while I am in the office, which must be true for the patient before me also because the wait can be long at times. However, I know that my time with him will not be rushed and I'm okay with the wait. Dr. Addy is among the best doctors you will ever encounter and I'm thankful to be under his care.
