Patient Comments (2)
in San Diego, CA |
short, not considerate, not personal, never even looked at me, but typed the whole time on computer and asked questions while typing, never looking over even once. I left with a prescription in my hand.
in Cardiff, CA |
I went in to see him after suffering from depression & anxiety. He put me on a medicine that made me very ill.I was throwing up, I had body tremors, & the worst headache I have had in a while.I called and told him this & he said don't take it for one day then go back on it again. I don't know about you but I do not like throwing up. So taking a medicine that I know makes me sick isn't okay. After I told him this, he removed me as a patient. What a terrible 'doctor'.I will never return to PCSD.
