I was discouraged by the immediate conclusion by the care provider that unless he could perform surgery there was really nothing he could do for me. His exam was barely existent.

I\'ve only had one appointment so my opinion is based on that experience. It was at least one hour wait until I actually saw the doctor and was a 2 hour total from arrival and departure. Doctor rushed through my appointment and every time I asked a question he was short with the answer. I wanted to ask more about my MRI results but decided not to since he was in such a hurry! My assumption was he was backed up with patients and wanted to hurry people along to catch up. He wasn\'t mean...just not very personable at all. I could tell he knew his job very well BUT he needs some time management to make patients feel like they can trust him. Especially if he has to operate on them. I can\'t say I\'d refer him according to my initial experience unless he\'s the top surgeon in the DFW area.
