I became the Medical Director of this Center 01/2016. I don't see any reviews on myself, so I will put in my 2 cents. First of all, people usually don't take the time to write good experiences, so the lack of entries since I started here should be a BIG clue to how well I treat my patients. I pride myself on giving each patient the visit that I would want, and I treat you as if you were a relative (on the good side of the family). We are open 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. We get busy from lunchtime on, so if you want the shortest wait possible, get there early. We treat fractures, strains and sprains, runny noses/cough and sew up cuts regularly here. I perform pre-employment and DOT physicals all day long. I honestly appreciate when people take the time to consult Dr. Google before seeing me. I look forward to meeting you. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your consideration.

To anyone who is chosing this place on there own accord and also those poor souls who have been told they MUST go here due to a work related injury, listen up. Allow me to shed some light on what you will experience. I recently injured my back on the job and was made to go to this Concentra office. My back pain was and IS so severe I can barely walk. Any pressure what so ever put on my right foot sends a lightining bolt down my right buttoks, 2 toes on my right foot are going numb, I have no reflexes in either of my legs, and i havent had a BM in a week tomorrow. Have I mentioned that this has been going on for 3 weeks? It has taken that long to finaly have them order an MRI. I had to go to 2 weeks worth of physical therapy in this condition. Every visit with the doctors would include them asking if I felt better yet. I would tell them no and let them know that I havent slept for more than 3 hours at a time since this started. Have they done anything what-so-ever? NOPE After my MRI tonight I have to go back Wed. I will be sure and post how that goes but because I have been several times now I'm gonna predict what will happen and explain why. We'll see how close I come in a couple days....First of all I will be told that the MRI didnt show anything to alert them of why I am having pain. I predict this because so far they have shown NO interest for my comfort what so ever. Also there are a few things you must understand that I have figured out through research and the attitude of the "care givers". When you leave you will probably ask your self how in the world could someone so indifferent and impersonel be a doctor? The answer is, you dont have to worry about being caring or considerate. The patients feelings or satisfaction with how they were treated doesnt matter at all. You see these doctors dont have to save face at all and they know it. The reason is companys make there employees go there and dont give them another alternative. Therefore the well never runs dry and the docs can run on auto pilot all day and not worry if its gonna hurt there practice. To add fuel to the fire, the companys love this. I dont think I have to explain why. Also you must realize that a MRI *w/o contrast will only show a definitive problem 10% of the time. Makes it pretty easy then to move em in move em out. It saddens me that we live in a world where your fellow man would send you gladly down the path of unemployment, suffering and pain, problems at home due to the stress of not knowing when you can get back to work, or if they are gonna have you back, or even worse, if you will be capable of going back oh yeah and lets not forget BAD HEALTH, just so he can make a buck. Doctors take an oath to provide health care to the best of there ability. People put there trust in them. Some folks didnt even have a choice in the matter, were forced to go only to be looked down upon from on high in there moment of need. What ever happend to truly wanting whats best for your fellow man? Easy...$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
