He is a very good dr, there is no doubt about that. But, i had to wait more than 2 hours to see him, that is absolutely not acceptable. Be aware about that or take a whole day off to see this dr. Good Luck.

This is the kind of doctor we dream we have in reality. His only problem is time management. He treats you like a detective or investigator. He takes down notes of everything you say, so you need to start with themost important and most relevant. He likes to do everything by himself making life easy for his assistants. I waited 3 hours to see him but it was worth the while. The 20 minutes i spent with him there was not a second of time wasted. I believe when it comes to internal medicine, every doctor should be like him

I liked him as a Dr. he is very knowledgeable about plumonary issues. My PCP gave me a referral to go see a plumonologist of my choice, I chose him because he is close to my house, and come to findout he is close friends with my PCP. So all in all it worked out for the best and would definitely recommend him!

Very nice attentive Dr, however, the wait time was ridiculous! I waited 2 hrs to see the dr. Then was moved to the room to be examined and that was another hour and 15 min. The total time in this officewas just under 4 hrs. And their excuse was that they had a lot of new patients, now keep in mind this was a Saturday and their hours are supposed to be from 10:30 am to 3 pm I left at 4:50 and he still had one more patient waiting. There is no excuse for this!

He is a good person so far we met him. Also a busy doctor I think because we had to wait too long after we brought our son from school. My son felt so tired to wait so long. Anyway thank you for your help.
