This dr has the one of the worse bed side manners that I have ever come accross. VERY RUDE!!! This dr nearly cost me my life by pushing me out of his office and telling me nothing is wrong with me when it turned out I had MRSA (Staph infection) and spent 2 weeks in the hospital very very ill. He needs to listen to his patients when they tell him tehy dont feel good and that somethign is wrong, he needs to work on his listening and people skills. I would never ever go back to this dr. His office staff were ok some days and rude on other days, they ran very hot and cold.
