Doctor came w higher reviews. Poor bed side manner. Assumed to know the diagnosis wo collecting the needed imaging. His diagnosis was incorrect after going under the knife. Just flat out cocky and irresponsible as a board certified doctor. Believe he works w professional teams and could be his reason for his unprofessional behavior in being reckless w my health and diagnosis. I am reaching out to state board to file an ethical complaint.
I would not recommend this physician to my worst enemy.Â He came into my appointment with a condescending attitude, didn't discuss or view my MRI with me, refused to answer my polite questions, and misdiagnosed my condition.Â His diagnostic troubleshooting skills are pitiful, especially for a surgeon who has been doing that job for that length of time.Â I don't know if maybe he only has interest in sports injuries and has gotten into a comfort zone with that, but I definitely expected more from a physician who works with the Carolina Panthers.
