I don't feel as though doctors take enough time to address every patient at pih. Whether it's my gyno, urologist, or primary doctor, every doctor that I've seen is in and out of the room within 5 minutes. I feel rushed and I don't feel like I get to thoroughly explain my issues. When I do have a problem all of my doctors are booked minimum a month in advance. So I'm forced to go to urgent care where they usually just band aid the problem and prescribe pain meds and then tell you to see your primary. I'm definitely getting fed up with the doctors at this provider and am even considering looking elsewhere.

He is thorough and seems very concerned about your health. I explained some of my major problems and he had already read my history and made comments about it. He did a thorough exam and will see me in 3 months for 2 additional tests. I explained some of my problems to him and he was aware of them, so I knew he had read my history. This was my first visit with him and I am very pleased. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. I have several problems besides my lung problem and I feel confident he will take good care of me.
