While there may be some that prefer his bedside manner, my wife at first thought it odd when he asked if the color of her hair was "natural". She was not there for a color treatment or a perm. After much searching, trying to find a new physician because her previous doctor was returning to the military we saw the reviews and we're hopeful. On her next appointment I went with her and she described some pains she was having. He told her that he had reviewed her x-rays and there may be an issue with her left hip but the right hip was unremarkable. When she advised him that a specialist had indicated a bilateral issue, he argued with her telling her that was not the case. When she mentioned a procedure that she had learned about on an episode of Dr. Oz, he appeared perturbed and told her that perhaps that is who she should go see, as in his opinion, it had no value. Well, we did not go to Dr. Oz but we have found someone that will actually listen to their patients. Beware of the ego folks.
