I haven\'t been in office for 18 months. Staff continues to be friendly but there is even a higher level of respect and concern shown by all. My medical situation has been somewhat complicated to diagnose and I truly appreciated the time and patience the doctor took with me during this visit. I am very pleased with the direction the provider and his staff are taking overall.

there\'s a fine line btw doing your homework prior to meeting the pacient and diagnosing someone before you meet them. he does his homework but I feel didn\'t spend enough time asking me questions. he provided two potential diagnoses neither of which was really correct.

His explanations were great. And I could tell he has done this before. He sounded like a recorded. My negativity comes from his lack of pausing when talking. Wish he wouldn\'t have sped through so fast. Felt like he had to run to another appointment and left me with questions. Felt rushed. On a good note - His staff was great. That was nice.
