Was able to get in office on one day notice thru referral. Virtually no wait time in office. He was very fast with his question to drill down and then some simple balance and coordination test. I had hard time telling him what I wanted him to hear outside his questions. He immediately put me in hospital thru ER and after in hospital I found him to be very easy to talk to, took the right amount of time, drew me pictures to help answer my specific questions, and I noticed how much the hospital staff liked him. He ordered the right test, diagnosed, treated, and resolved my issue which could have been very serious if he hadn't acted aggressively. He is one of the "all about business" doctors and won't engage in small talk, but I would highly recommend him.
I have never encountered a doctor more unconcerned about why you are at this appointment. I saw him for an entire year. First he started ordering tests, every test available, and never told me the results of these tests. He just ordered more tests. I came to see him for having 1 seizure while I was in the hospital, do to a loud alarm all night. He put me on seizure medication. After that, I had another one. He increased the medication, several times. In 2014 I had 16 gran maul seizures. Never before or since. Finally I asked my pharmacist about this. After a review of my medications, she called me back and said that seizures was a common side effect of taking to much of that seizure medication.
I think that he should have answered any of my questions or at least acknowledged that I was speaking. His lack of communication is far below the standard of care. Just my opinion.
