    Long waiting time he's rude only cares on how much he can get from insurance. People of not good elements are waiting for long periods of time for their prescription opiates. That's why he has patients doesn't exam u first time examination then monthly appt for Prescription. Will charge co pay just for prescription all he care is for money. He use to care for patients. Now he only wants patients with private insurance or a PPO insurance that pays a lot of money. Mistreats his medical assistant
