He was very attentive, caring and professional. My mother is elderly and he did not rush her or act like he had to hurry and get to his next patient. He listened to everything she said and interacted with interest. On top of that, he is kind enough to volunteer his services at the assisted living center where she lives so she doesn't have the struggle of getting out every time she needs to see a Dr. I highly recommend him.

Worst Doctor That I have ever seen, she blamed all of my health problems on my weight. I went to see her for about a year with the same problem, Pain in my foot after an injury, She kept telling me that it was nothing or maybe I pulled a tendon in my foot and that there was nothing that they could do for me. Turns out After a year of pain and suffering I searched the internet and self diagnosed my problem, at my next Dr. appointment I told her that I thought that I might have Planters Fisaces. She told me that she didn't think that was my problem but FINALLY sent me for an ex-ray (AFTER A YEAR!!!) and it turned out that I was right I did have Planters Fisaces. Needless to say I am no longer seeing her as my PCP
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
