This guy's arrogance astounds me! He treats his patients like they are less than human, beneath him. I had a recent stay in the hospital that could have been a lot shorter but I was waiting around on him to see me. He kept telling the nursing staff that he would be there at a certain time and then wouldn't show up and then they would call him and remind him and then he would say he would show up then but wouldn't. I finally got so sick that they discharged me to refer me to another gi doctor. His word means nothing and he is too full of himself and arrogant to treat people with empathy. I would highly recommend against seeing him!
