The doctor is fine. His staff is horrible. They scheduled a sleep study appointment for me, and said they'd handle everything with my insurance. On the day of the study appointment I had to call them to make sure it wasstill on, and they had no record of my appointment. Then they canceled my sleep study, saying they had to figure out if my insurance covered the study. Three weeks later I still never heard back. It took me 15 minutes on the phone with my insurance company to figure out everything was covered. Also, they wrote my appointment date and time on a piece of loose computer paper. Incompetent!

I waited forever in the patient room. Finally, his PA came in first and asked a ton of questions and looked in my nose and ear. She left, told the doctor. When he walked in, he didn't even touch me. Toldme to immediately go to get a cat scan of my sinuses and come back. I did that, came back and waited. The receptionist finally gave my CD to the PA again and she looked at it and said nothing was wrong with me and that the doctor suggests I see a pulmonologist. Worst day ever. A wasted trip with no answers and no relief. SO FRUSTRATED!

The provider was okay-- office staff were slow, discourteous and unprofessional. I value providers who are professional and polite. They were more than two weeks late in following up with me and when they finally did, were incredibly rude--follow-upwas absolutely horrible. Will never go to this provider's office again and certainly will not recommend them.

For me it was a waste of time/money. I realize that it's the doctor's prerogative to determine treatment, but I went to a sleep doctor with complaint of anxiety-induced insomnia and a history of successful treatment with medication. You'd thinkhe'd prescribe something to help me sleep, but instead just said to buy a "blue light" off of Amazon.com and to come in for expensive overnight sleep studies. Note that his profile says that he accepts CareFirst BSBS PPO, but I still had to pay out of pocket. What a huge waste.
