I wouldn't reccomend him. I booked him because of the credentials that were outlined on his page and the reviews writtenabou thim. When I went into the office my exectations weren't matched with his performance. The office is very small and disorganized. The medical equipment was just stored in regualar plastic storage bins, there was a only a curtain separating the waiting area from one of the rooms. There was a huge mess of papers, books, bags, & boxes all throughout the office and center. When I saw him he checked me out and spoke two words throughout the entire time. He was not informative nor was he asking me any questions. I was asked to have some tests done and it's been 3 weeks and still haven't been called for my results. I've left numerous messages and no one has returned my call. Don't book an appointment with him!!! *Only good thing: the staff is nice*
