I received excellent care from the provider and his staff during my stay in the hospital.

August 29, 2018

The nurse, receptionist and physical plant were awesome. The doctor barely looked at me and could have phoned in the exam. I was there to select a surgeon and he is not the person I want to work with. Completely uninterested in talking to me.

August 29, 2018

Excellent! Wish every drs office was run like this one!

August 22, 2018

Seemed disinterested

August 22, 2018

Dr's nursing assistant was very professiol, thorough, and considerate. Doctor seemed to be rushed and didn't share his thoughts with the patient. Doctor didn't seem to have reviewed patient's tests and reports prior to seeing patient. Reception staff was very friendly and helpful.

August 22, 2018

fantastic doctor

August 22, 2018

All was good and as expected. I went as a follow up for a back injury to be sure I didn't need any surgery.

August 22, 2018

Took longer to see doctor; waited 30 minutes past appointment time, although nurse did apologize for the wait.
