Verified Patient Reviews
He was very efficient and took time discussing my problem and suggesting a plan of treatment.
He was great. He evaluated my physical condition, answered my questions and didn't waste time with unnecessary dialogue/procedures.
I saw the pratictioner but I loved her they are great and are very helpful!
He is a complete narcissist, told me that I never need my original back surgery even though I had Five fractured vertebrae along with three Jean desk and one ruptured disc that was pressing down on my L5 S one.
This is a awful "doctor" and I use that term loosely. He's ready to cut you open on the 1st visit without seeing how you would respond to medications and less invasive methods. I would like to warn everyone not to go to this guy,now I see why he's begging for patients on ZOCDOC. Don't go to this guy for anything!! I absolutely don't recommend this guy.
Always very professional.
Informative, thorough, did not feel rushed. Dr. C was patient and responded to all questions, thoughtfully.
Doctor was very personable, knowledgeable and direct.
