No concern for patient

I'm very disappointed in the care he has provided. He is more concerned saving a few cents for insurance company than caring for patient.

Poor choice for a doctor

Been going to him for 3+ years and recently tried a new doctor. I was suprised the difference in care. To put it bluntly this guys does not follow up and gives diagnosis base on educated guesses. Instead of taking the needed measures to properly perform test, he usually says it's not needed and symptoms are not serious. Takes lots of notes when talking to you but not much more in terms of what is really important. I'm very disappointed in the care he has provided.
