Doctor was unorganised and managed patient records with paper records. Came in for a simple repeat prescription and he tried to refer me to 3 different specialists. Clearly a scratch my/your back system going on there. The repeat prescriptionneeded a blood test for which he checked the boxes for everything except the one thing I needed testing. Useless.

I think Dr. Kenneth is a great doctor. I liked everything about him. I went for annual checkup and had some general question concerning my health to ask him. This was the first time I visited this doctor and I'll begoing to him rest my life. Erica his nurse, is also wonderful. Dr. Kenneth also does follow up which is ex termly important. He took his time and explained every question that I had, to my satisfactory. I could really tell that he cares a lot about his patients. He has lots of experience and knowledge. He is someone that you can trust %100. I saw few patient leaving his office with a big smile. He makes you feel very welcome like someone who has known you for a long time.

He is a very experienced and knowledgeable doctor. One issue is that they are NOT integrated well with Zocdoc - so I had to do the paperwork again. And also they don't take the Insurance Card through mobile app - theywanted a physical hardcopy! I had to find a print out location nearby And they don't have a computer in the office! Again - The doctor is very experienced - particularly for headaches
