Inapropriate and rude.

I went to him many years ago and my experience was horrific. I left the office crying. He was rude and abrupt, and re-examined me vaginally after the nurse left the room. Dont' go to him if you want to be a respected patient. He should not be practicing and get away with his comments and behavior.

Customer Service

I read the reviews and I am glad I am not the only one that feels the same way, the staff is very rude and yes you have to wait very long to be seen by dr. I had a procedure done and after had no care instructions after it was done. I had a problem with prescription from pharmacy and I have been calling for three weeks at the office no one has called me back pertaining prescription. I was scheduled for two things to be done he only did one and he assured me it was going to be taken care of. I am just waiting on insurance eob to see if he was paid for it. After my follow up visit I am going to find me another gynecologist.

Insensitive Jerk, if your referred to him, say no and run fast!

I had a miscarriage in February, during Pap smear he made the comment "if you've had sex this shouldn't bother you" and during the ultrasound and which time I found out I had had a miscarriage when asked what should be done and when, he stated "come Monday and I'll take care of it" . After thinking about it in the office I was not going to let him touch me and told him so. His last comment as I left the office was "if you start to bleed and need to go to the ER don't call me, I won't help you" now after all that my answer is "you don't have to worry about that, I am never going back to you"

Great Doctor.

He has been my Dr. since 1995 and he is amazing. He delivered both of my children and took me through a required hysterectomy. I have recommended him to many friends. The staff has always been great about everything and I have never had any issues.
