The worst doctor I have ever encountered in my quest to find answers for the problems I am experiencing. He is rude, ignorant, self-serving, arrogant and possibly unstable emotionally. He actually came to my hospital room and screamed at me, for no reason other than, he claims I ruined his vacation, after HE had me admitted. I believe this Dr.(?) needs to be investigated on many levels. Is he actually a physician? Is he practicing within the guidelines that most Dr.'s would consider ethical and truthful, or is he a charlatan and a fraud. I HAVE BEEN TO MANY DOCTORS TO DEAL WITH MY CONDITION, BUT HE IS THE FIRST AND ONLY PERSON THAT I'VE ACTUALLY CONSIDERED TO BE A POSSIBLE HARM TO MY HEALTH AND WELL BEING. Somebody PLEASE have this man investigated before someone really suffers immeasurable harm from his supposed 'treatment'. The man is a disgrace to the profession and a personal mess as a human being.

The WORST provider I have ever experienced. I have waited over 1 month since I have submitted a urine test to determine if I was really taking the meds I have been for the last 7 years.I was told that that my labs were lost then found then the doctor would get back to me within a few days.Well after being told I would get a call from the doctor(that is now over 1 month ago) and daily phone calls to see if this pompous MENSA would return my calls to follow up with actual treatment I have not even received calls from the office person who assured me at the very least he would call back to let me know what was going on.I can only say WARNING this is a person who should be called on his lack of follow through.He is the worst doctor I have ever tried to communicate with and his lack of care is dangerous to all...
I came to him with head trauma: vomiting and headaches. He put me on two meds, said go home and I'll either get better or not. Vomiting persisted and I phoned like he said to: only to be yelled at by his assistant so loudly my housemate came from the other side of the house. When I finally got back into see Dr. A he yelled at me for not contacting him sooner cuz my esphogus could burst. He seemed more concerned with his mensa awards on the walls than my care. A workers comp mill was how the waiting room felt.
In my opinion, he purposely gave me a misleading diagnosis, which he phrased very carefully from a legal perspective so that he couldn't be called on it later if he got caught. It was the wording of his diagnosis that let me know something was wrong. He also laughed when I told him about nerve pain I was having, again unless he's a sadist, there could be no reason but to throw me off. It was impossible to get through to that office. They do not follow through on reports, referrals, correspondence or calls. The doctor keeps you waiting while he drinks coffee. The office is often completely closed while his assistant takes his two dogs for a walk (they are kept in the office). As noted by others, I was asked for a credit card number. I refused. This doctor is smart, but not honest.
They almost never answered the phone when I called. On average, it took them 5 days to return my calls when I left a message. I had an unbelievably bad experience after they told me that they had pre-approved an expensive test with my insurance company. Well, about 3 weeks after the test, I received a letter from the insurance company stating that my claim was being denied because the test hadn't been pre-approved! The bill was for $4000! When I questioned the doctor and his "office manager", they told me that my insurance company was "lying" to me and that I was "lucky they accepted insurance at all." When I first saw the doc, his office manager insisted that I allow him to take an imprint of one of my credit cards and that I give him my social security number. Now I know why they do this. Overall, my experience with this doctor was disappointing and maddening.
seems very human for a doc (that's a good thing!); he gets to the point quickly, explains things in detail, gets a _lot_ of info into a few short minutes, has a practical approach to my debilitating condition, and above all has a sense of humour!
