He treats assumptions, not patients. He's fine, I suppose, for stitches and runny noses but DO NOT go to him for anything more complicated than that. If you have a chronic or multiple medications, he will not be able to help you. I have a team of specialists and looked to him for only very basic primary care. He was not only disappointing but his recommendations were dangerous. He will pick and choose the parts of your history and chart that match his assumptions about you and disregard the rest. He will blame, judge, and lecture you. I am afraid that he does more harm than good when he encounters a complicated case. On a positive note, he takes his time, keeps good notes and covers a wide variety of topics. Unfortunately, you won't know what pieces of information he will disregard or what narrow little box he will try with all his might to shove you into.
As others have mentioned, Doctors like him are rare nowadays. Not only does he take his time to listen but I specially appreciate how he details all procedures and the fact that puts it in writing for my personal record. I leave there knowing what's next and why.
This is the nicest doctor I have ever visited, he takes his time he answers your questions thoroughly and he talks to you like you're a real person. He has a personal touch that is lacking in medicine and he genuinely cares about his patients. His nurse has the personality of a broomstick but the front office staff are so friendly even when the waiting room is running over with patients they are polite and courteous.
