Patient Comments

    The experience I had was actually in 2 parts. One was the doctor present in the last 10 or 15 minutes. And the bulk of the time with his assistant who seemed quite confident. But I left the visit a bit unsure how much I had told the assistant was actually going to get through to the doctor, and I missed the opportunity to possibly discuss any subtleties in some of the answers that I might have given.

    He was thorough and attentive to the fact that the EMG inflicted pain.

    I was very, very pleased with his performance, and I believe I got excellent care.

    It?s really changing for the better, the communication has improved and appears that the patient is important while before my experience was that they felt almost that they were doing you a favor and I felt very uncomfortable , keep it up because it?s a good feeling of respect that I am feeling, the way that should be. Kudos

    care provider a "Rock Star" - in my opinion

  • Apr 26, 2018

    I have never had such a bad experience with any doctor. Felt as if my pain was not taken seriously, and that he could care less of getting me the help that I needed. He threw me off to another doctor and did not discuss what steps I needed to take to feel better.
