Selective On Care

He seems to be selective on who he prefers to see and pawns off patients on other medical professionals, so makes it less work for him. He seems knowledgeable enough, but is at a place where it has taken him to a mode of, he doesn't care much. His staff is the most unhappy, unprofessional, and inaccurate people that I've seen at any medical establishment. Hope he considers private practice, it may do him some good.

Not Bad..Not Good..Just There

He seems to know some things but clueless on others. Not very thorough with exam or diagnosis. If you have a cold or an ear thing going on, then he will do. Anything that requires some real thinking and follow up, go to a specialist.
