One Star

This doctor will not even look at you. No hellos, just looks at a computer. He was literally googling medicine with the patient right there. Does not ask questions. Just orders labs and never follows through with anything. Worse experience ever.

John Doe

I found him to be incredibly rude. Every time I go to him and ask him "how are you?" he responds "I will be better at 4:30" The first time I went to the office he didn't even introduce himself, I had to introduce myself to him. He complains if your visit takes longer than the expected allotted time frame. His bedside manner is undersireable. That being said...he knows his stuff. If you can put up with all of the above and deal just pragmatically then he's the doctor for you. If you are looking for someone who cares for the whole person and not just your 10 minute time frame than look elsewhere. I am.....I can't wait to leave this office.

I like his down-to-earth attitude and his respect for me as he takes time to listen to me for input relating to visit. He is extremely knowledgeable and a warm human being.
