He and the staff ignore the fact that I want my girlfriend released to me. They want to force her to do what they want and not what she wants. SHE wants to come home to me & they aren't making that happen.

I tried him as my primary Dr. and it just didn't work out. He double books all his appointments so get ready to wait. Never explains anything or gives any gameplan. I had MRSA and he didn't even recognize the systems. Just a completely disappointing experience. I could of died because of this guy.
