The best thing I can say is that he is a good technician. Other than that, he's irresponsible, a poor communicator and borderline quack. He blamed me for a common side effect of a medication, having not listened my simple explanation. He gave me contradictory advice. He clearly does not view medicine as a collaboration between doctor and patient. He's God and you're a supplicant. And if anything goes wrong, he's not to blame.

One Star

I DO NOT recommend this doctor. He did surgery to clean a cyst next to my urethra. He was clear that the only thing I had to do after the surgery was to see him in 4 weeks and that the stitches I had were dissolvable. After 5 days of pain, I called the office and found out that HE FORGOT to tell me to take out the stitches the day after the surgery. When I reached him on the phone, he was rude, did not apologize for his mistake and even blamed me for not calling earlier. I can't believe a doctor can forget to tell the patient or give in writing the procedure after a surgery. I went through a lot of pain and trouble just because of his inefficiency. He may be OK for men, but I definitely DON'T recommend him for women.

disorganized with incompetent staff

There seems to be a chronic wait in this room. I wait over an hour for the appointment and as soon as I am in the room, I wait another 15 - 30 minutes in the exam room. It's decent when you are there for a check up, but when I had a procedure done it was miserable. It was even worse that his bedside manner during the procedure was terrible, he was aloof and did not explain what he was doing. Terrible doctor, will not go back.
