05/06/14 4 4 5 4 As a patient, I found Dr. to be very concerned and followed my blood tests closely. He offers med advice to help make amends to med problems of any negative blood test results. He even recommends certain books to read to help improve eating proper diet to maintain diabetes control. I like the fact he has CKG and tread mill to monitor heart condition. I hope to visit him over future years to monitor my overall health condition, especially my diabetes and heart as I am 66y with recent heart bypass.

17/12/13 1 1 1 1 Absolutely horrific! He never showed up for 1 appointment and secretary didn't have the decency to call and let me know. I traveled 90 mins and sacrificed 1/2days pay. 2nd time, my appt. was at 10am he came at 11am. He never has my current info, results, charts, etc. I have to call and remind them to get my current results and still they fail. I have to bring all my own reports or he'll never have them. Absolutely no respect for others time and does not care about patients at all. So disappointing. Just horrific.  Respond

13/11/13 3 3 1 1 He recommended to keep an eye on my thyroid issues. My thyroid was clearly protruding at the time of his assessment. I switched doctors and had my thyroid removed. It turned out to be cancerous. I just wish I went to a different specialist sooner.  Respond

06/08/07 5 4 5 5 this doctor listens to what you have to say, is very thorough and sends you for whatever diagnostic tests he deems to be necessary, he is very calm and explains test results very well. He has a good bedside manner and is concerned to get to the bottom of your medical problem. I highly recommend him as an endocrine specialist.  Respond

10/04/07 4 1 1 Ignored my concerns about various symptoms and immediatly wanted to put me on numerous medications, saying that I just needed to excercise more and take the Pill to control my hormones. Months later I was diagnosed with a brain tumor by a different doctor.  Respond
