    Dr True started out as a very promising person who I believed would help me with my problems. Only got to see him twice and saw his practitioner the rest of the time. I guarantee I was charged for seeing him when I saw his practitioner. Then I get a certified letter saying he no longer felt comfortable providing my medical care and to not contact his office after May 11. I was very polite and paid my bill so I have no clue why I was dropped. Very disappointed. Left me stranded without a doctor.
