I DO NOT LIKE TO CRITICIZE MUCH BUT I HAVE TO SAY HE IS THE BIGGEST EMBARRASSMENT TO THE MEDICAL PROFESSION. HE WAS RUDE, SHOWED ABSOLUTELY NO REGARD FOR MY MEDICAL CONDITION. AFTER DRIVING NEARLY 30 MILES TO COME HERE, HE SAW ME FOR LITERALLY 2 MINUTES, TOLD ME TO SIGN PAPERS AND DID NOT GIVE ANY FEEDBACK OR EXPLANATION OF MY CONDITIONS. I WENT BACK HOME WITH STILL CHRONICALLY INFLAMED NASAL PASSAGES. PEOPLE LIKE THIS DO NOT DESERVE TO CARE FOR PATIENTS. THEY ARE GREEDY AND BASICALLY MAKE PEOPLE'S CONDITIONS EVEN WORSE.
I had an acute thyroid inflammation that gets bigger by the inch every week, went to see him FOUR times and every time he spent about "ONE" minute with me, but didn't do anything at all, no meds, no diagnosis pertaining to the problem, NOTHING! (only told me the results of some exams, 2 sentences and he's out of the room!) My wife is a RN, she could of done that!He has very poor bedside manner, don't care about patients and only wants $$$$. I do not recommend this doctor to anyone!
I visited him because of my recent nose bleeds. I did not have insurance at the time so I was go to pay cash. When I saw him his immediate concern was my payment for the visit. He spent less than 5 minutes looking at my nose and said he can't do anything without putting a scope down my nose which will run another $300 and ask if I can pay for it. So I asked him why do we have to use the scope and what is he looking to find. That is when he became rude and ask "so can you pay for it or not". I can't believe how he treats his patients. He is not even professional enough to complete the examination that I pre-paid for and is only worrying about what I can pay for in the future.
