This doctor is TERRIBLE! Apparently he is well known for performing surgeries which must be the only way he stays in business.

If you make an appointment for a certain time, plan to see the doctor AT LEAST an hour and a half after your scheduled time. Any time before that, consider yourself lucky. The staff at the front desk has absolutely no personality and is generally very rude and ignores half of your questions (i.e. when are we seeing the doctor?).

The patient room is always full of 5-10 patients waiting to see the doctor. My first visit there I waited two hours only to find out that the doctor was supposed to be back from lunch at 1:00 pm and it was now nearly 3:00 pm before he even arrived. The staff failed to inform us it would be a long wait due to his absence.

If you're not in so much pain that you need surgery or injections in your spine, expect him to throw you off to acupuncture or discharge you saying you're fine. I was in a car accident and am still having moderate to severe pain and he basically told me that I'm never going to get better. The only treatment I have tried is chiropractic and acupuncture. There are still many other treatments out there. When I asked about physical therapy, he told me I move around just fine so I'm going to have to deal with it. I was a dancer for 15 years. Touching my toes is not a difficult task.

Rude doctor, rude staff, they don't validate parking, and you wait over an hour to see the doctor. If you can go somewhere else, please do. I only go because it's the only place I can where my lawyers can cover the expenses until the at fault insurance pays for it.
