Sad excuse for a doctor
Wait time
60 minutes
"You will always be there for 2- 2 & 1/2 hours it won't matter what time of day. "
Easy Appointment
"Will overbook himself and generally does not arrive at his office until 15-20 minutes after his scheduled appointments. "
Promptness
"Generally will always wait about 2 hours before being seen, first long wait is in the outside waiting room and second long wait is after vitals are taken."
Friendly Staff
"The staff is generally nice but always seems to be covering for the doctors unethical behavior. I feel as if they are not equipped to do their job. "
Fair and Accurate Diagnosis
"Important problems are always put on the back burner and never addressed. Physician is off and seems to be very anxious about being caught as if he is doing something wrong. Tried prescribing me something I am highly allergic to. "
Spends Time with Patients
"At most he will spend 5 minutes, enough time to print out and sign a new prescription. Sprict refil requests are billed at a very high rate ($160) per visit. "
Appropriate Follow-up
"He will say come back in 1, 2 weeks ect to only get paid- will not actually follow up. If you are a woman take a man with you otherwise he treats you poorly. Will treat you differently if you have someone there to witness it. "
Please read all comments they will save you money, time and life.

Positive Comments

When i first started going to him I felt he was helping me- more than 2 years later I see him for who he really is.

Negative Comments

Has gotten angry and hostile with me over another patient making him angry. Has sent me to friends of his that are doctors that have done terrible work ( a botched surgery) ect. Will cut you off of certain medications that you should not be taken off suddenly. Will constantly violate HIPPA laws and leave your information sitting on the computer screen for all to see. Tries to sell his wife's skin care line by saying he recommends it as a doctor.

General Comments

Don't go here, please unless you only want pain medicine. If you are one of those prescription pain medication abusers this is the doctor for you, I always see tweakers in the waiting room and see people going through withdraws there as well as elderly people who don't know any better.
