I've heard many good things about him but he wasn't helpful to me, a fibromyalgia patient. Didn't listen to or care about med side effects, didn't believe my complaints, suggested one drug and said there was nothing else on the market and if it didn't work, there was "nothing" he could offer me. Staff rude, made sure you knew how unimportant you were to them, how much of a hassle dealing with you was. Average time spent in waiting room was 45-60 min, also stood in like each time for 15-20 min. to pay copay. Also a very nonresponsive office--took forever to get records sent if they were sent at all, messages left are never answered. He may be great for arthritis and other conditions but if you are a fibromyalgia patient, don't bother.
