Beware I'd rather go to a torture chamber than back to see this man!!!!!

Worst doctor I've ever met. Inconsiderate and completely unhelpful! I have no idea why this man chose this profession and how he is still practicing today! I wouldn't send my worst enemy to see him. He acted like it was a problem for me to be in his presence. If you want to feel worse than you did before you walked in this is the doctor to see. If you need help I recommend going anywhere but to him.

Horrible

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to my worst enemy. Let me start out by saying the staff was very sweet. Nurses were great and the xray technician was very sweet. Even the girl at the front desk was extremely nice. But then everything changed when the doctor walked in. He was extremely rude. He cut me off anytime I tried to speak. He didn't want to hear what I had to say as a brand new patient from another town. He did the basic knee exam, which felt like forever because he did it several more times than what needed to be done, had me walk into the hallway as he directed the orders as if I were 2 years old. Told me that I needee an MRI and that if he"seen anything" he would schedule a treatment or surgery and if he didnt see anything I would just "have to deal with it". I said "What? As in deal with this for the rest of my life? He said yes and opened up the door as I started crying and tried to leave. I had to stop him and say, so what are we going to do, im not going to be able to walk here soon since you jerked my knee all over. I was very confused at this point. He was so annoyed with me, when he was the one an hour and a half late to my appt!! Then he just walked out the door. I couldn't believe it. I drove an hour there and an hour back, for a 5 min humiliating appt.
