    He has become a horrible doctor. He has become insulting, condescending, uncaring and incompetent. What a sad change from the wonderful doctor he used to be.

    I was with Dr. Charles for almost a decade. I admired him but over the years he became increasingly condescending, arrogant, and unkind and ignored select questions. My new doctor has cleaned my medical records of several questionable and downright false diagnoses (kidney disease among them!). If you want to run up office visits for someone's early retirement plan, he's just the guy. He also referred me to his wife for care without disclosing the relationship. That's unprofessional at best.

    He used to be a great doctor. But he changed about 2 years ago. He used to be compassionate and competent. but he became condescending. insulting and forgetful. What a horrible change. I no longer trust his competence. I reluctantly left his care late last year, after two decades of being his patient. I would not recommend him to anyone anymore.
