He has very bad verbal and written communication problems. In addition, his entire demeanor changes for the worst when clients have inquiries pertaining to tests given. He doesn't follow through with his clients and he orders his staff to dealwith his clients when he becomes frustrated for his lack of communication.

Waited a bit before being seen as a new patient. He was also having some computer issues which may have played a part in the wait time. I will see him again to see if the wait time lessens, but hewas very prompt and thorough with his examination which i appreciated. The staff was professional and informed me of the issues they were having that was causing a delay.

He was not very kind; he was rude in fact when I tried to tell him of my issues. He dismissed them and made me feel very uncomfortable.

The staff was great! The office was very clean. I waited over 2 hours with an appointment. The doctor seemed to be irritated with me and he NEVER followed up with me about my blood test results. He seems to NEVERbe in the office and he NEVER gets back to you. I've been trying to get in touch with him for 3 weeks about my results. I even asked his staff to give me my info over the phone but they could not. So I had to continue to call the doctor's office just to have the staff tell me I needed to reshedule because my levels were too hIgh. Why dId it have to take 3 weeks?! I was able to get my HIV results a few days after my blood work so that was a plus. The doctor has had his staff call me twice to reschedule because I was "busy". I will be seeking a new doctor Asap

Went for a physical, and they did not provide information on the procedure to take prior to the appointment. Also, they kept making mistakes on the referral for knee MRI. Mistakes were made twice and it was extremely inconveniencing becauseI had to go back to the MRI office the following day.
