He's great! I would highly recommend him! Upon arriving, it took 25 minutes for me to fill out the forms, see him, figure out my issue and leave! He's also very friendly and has a wonderful bedside manner!

I was late, hence my delayed time getting to see him. He's a pro and delightful to talk to. Very responsive.

The first time I saw this doctor, he made a few jokes that made me uncomfortable about skin cancer and such, but I thought that it might be his personality and shouldn't hold it against it. The second time I wanted to see him was a year later and when I called to make an appointment, I was transferred to another office. On the day of the appointment, I came to the office where I saw this doctor before, but he no longer worked there and they told me he's now at the new office, which is about 25 min away from the old office. I had to see the doctor because I had a rash and was leaving the next day for 16 days. When I called the new office to explain that I wasn't notified of the new office and that I'll be about 15 min late to my appointment because I had to quickly commute to the other office, I was told by the receptionist that the doctor can't wait and won't see me. I tried to explain that it was an emergency and that I waited for this appointment and that I came to the office 15 min before the appointment, they refused to see me. After this attitude, I decided that I wanted to change my doctor because I do not need a doctor who can't see a patient when it's emergency and make an exception for someone who is late by a few minutes due to the fact that the patient was not notified of the new office in the first place.

I could hear the doctor making jokes outside the door for quite some time while I waited in the room. He was trying to have a zany personality I guess, but I had a serious issue which I felt he was not taking seriously, and he was not listening closely to what I was saying. I was telling him about my psoriasis history, and he interjected "how do you know it's not eczema??" He then prescribed an ointment for eczema, which was not what I needed. I didn't feel an ounce of trust toward this doctor. I won't be back.

He was great, but scattered. His staff had me waiting, first to see him, and then again afterwards because they weren't sure what he had prescribed. It might have just been pre-holiday fog, but if it happens again I might look elsewhere.
