I am a very healthy individual and very rarely need to be seen by a health careprovider. in this case I had been dealing with an illness for more than a week and it was not getting better. I informed the provider of my issues and what I felt it may be. he then proceeded to ask me what he should do about it and then ask me what I was expecting for a prescription. He seemed to be insinuating that I was there for some sort of opiate type pills. if he would have checked my medical records he would have seen that I have never taken these in my history and I was there to get relief for an infection. I felt disrespected during the whole appointment with him. The nurse was amazing and got with me quickly. he took over 20 minutes from the time she left to come in and see me. he was there less than 5 minutes.

It's fantastic to have someone who really listens and works with me, particularly on meds, instead of someone who approves or disapproves of a med based on their personal feelings about that product.

I had diarrhea for several weeks, lost 25 lbs in less than 4 weeks. No one seemed too concerned about it. There was adequate information on what to do at home but no information about what to expect and how to deal with it (sometimes quite messy and difficult to manage).

He's very caring and a great listener. One of the best medical providers I've ever had.

I made an appointment that I had to leave work for and I was not taken back until 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. When I went to receptionist to ask how much longer I got I'm not sure they are running behind, and my comeback was some of us have to leave work and use our leave to do so!!!!

He listened and prescribed meds but said, "If you insist/demand on x-rays we will do it." Gave me the impression I didn't need x-ray but had lawn mower flip me off the back seat and partially land on me. Probably broken ribs with lots of contusions and lower back pain. I should have DEMANDED x-rays.

Larry is very very good at his profession. I've gotten more useful information and care from him than any other doctor I've seen previously in my entire life. Quite impressed.

I didn't like the fact that it took over an hour to see this Dr. I was on time for a 3:45 appointment and didn't see him until almost 5pm. This is just one of the problems with healthcare these days, and it's been like this as long as I can remember.
