Although I think he is a perfectly knowledgable doctor, I will say that he does not have a very friendly/caring demeanor. He spends most of the appointment typing things into the computer rather that talking to you.

Unbelievably bad. Rude, abrupt and careless. He called me the wrong name during office visit, and didn't believe me when I corrected him(!) until finally a nurse told him he had the wrong chart. I had a complex partial seizure right in front of him during an office visit and he didn't recognize it as a seizure! Repeatedly asked if I had been sexually abused as a child (I had not)and appeared not to believe me when I said no. Weird. During hospitalized 4 day video-EEG monitoring, my records were mixed with another patient's. His report had fact errors and self-contradictions. Misdiagnosed me with conversion disorder (psychogenic non-epileptic seizures); did not prescribe epilepsy treatment. Few months later, my seizures began increasing from about 1 every month or two to about 3/week--I was terribly ill. Finally got to see a good neuro, was properly diagnosed, prescribed 2 anti-seizure meds, rapidly improved, and seizures now well-controlled. Probably the worst MD I ever met. Beware.

Has the attitude of my way or the highway. Very abrupt, careless bedside manner. A very non-caring attitude.
