Saw me as a same day appointment. Was seen right away. Great doctor! He sat down and actually listened to me. He answered all of my questions and showed great compassion! I will keep seeing him from now on!

He was very quick and definitely knew what he was talking about. He was training a nurse while seeing me, but that didn't take much more time.

The doctor used me as a subject to explain my problems to his staff. Not really concerned on what my problems are. I have to tell him that my primary focus is on my wrist pain and he just gave a tablet without even looking at it. Not satisfied.

This doctors office was pretty full I got called in immediately possibly waited 5 minutes. I was a new patient they did all testing, asked a bunch of questions. They really addressed everything I had concerns with and answered any questions i had. The doctor was also funny and energetic which I haven't seen in a long time. I would have to say this was the best doctor I've had in about 15 years. Would highly recommend!

I feel like he really listened to me and was genuine about caring about my health and well-being. He took a very systematic, logical approach to how we were going to tackle my issues and explained goals thoroughly.

The reason for this visit was for asthma medication, medication for my GERD, but also to inquire about ways that one can deal with depression/anxiety/suicide without using medicine (since I have a long history of using harsh medications for my lungs in which the after effects are now sprouting, I didn't want more chemicals in me if not needed). He didn't seem at all interested in getting to know me as a human (though I was giving him personal background information would effect my health), let alone as a patient, to see what the best route for me would be. Granted, I know he's not a psychiatrist, but if he didn't have the answer, he could have directed/referred me to someone who did (i.e. personal/professional references/connections, office brochures, or something!). Without even explaining the medication or options, he prescribed me depression medication, my two other medicines, and sent me on my way. I felt as if I was just another co-pay in his pocket, instead of feeling like he genuinely cared for my well-being. Empathy and communication is definitely lacking from this doctor and I'm sorry, but if he is more concerned with getting one in and out the door rather than sincerely examining the patient, in my eyes he's just an average Joe prescribing medication.

It was my first visit to a Doctor in Florida. He took time to take down my medical history, ask questions, and find out about me. That is the kind of doctor I seek. He had me have usual blood and urine tests, and the follow-up visit was very thorough, making sure I didn't have any questions. I would highly recommend his practice, knowing that it is a two-Doctor practice.

I thought he was extremely under staffed, unorganized, and rushed. He is a nice man who I believe means well but I did not feel as though I was listened to and received the proper care. I left seeking another opinion and no better off than when I first came in.

The staff was very friendly and professional, not to mention knowledgeable and considerate about making sure I had the appropriate coverage. The doctor himself was warm yet quick.
