    Rude, condescending treat patients families like they don't matter! Went to ask a question, was told quote" I'm sure you loved ones issues are important to you, but what I'm doing is more important.....let me finish, and I will talk to you then". Man needs to retire!

    Avoid this jerk!!! I had a raging tsh of 118 & CKD. In response to my questions regarding diet & avoiding dialysis, he said I was obsessed with my health & wasting his time with nonsense from the web! Darn right I'm obsessed I had a close relative die from ckd. He said diet doesn't make a difference which is a lie (some ckd patients need to limit foods high in potassium, phosphorus, etc.). I was utterly shocked by his incredibly rude, arrogant & nasty attitude & refusal to answer my questions.
