Patient Comments (1)
in Eureka, CA |
The doctor was always in a great hurry when with me. I tried to explain what was wrong, he ignored my concerns completely, saying he was the ONE who knew about my type of situation. He disregarded my comments, left the hospital early, and left me in terrible pain. He/his office did not return my calls for days until I finally had to go to my PCP who, thankfully, helped me immediately. Beware of this overconfident doctor!
