I did a duvet earlier, but I don't see it, so I'm doing it again. I am very happy with this doctor. He is kind andhrlped me so much. I kept having blood in my urine and he kept looking into it until he figured it out. Very patient.

Very kind. Funny too. I would say smart and real.
in Eagle Nest, NM |
I have many issues & because of lab tests, was told I have chronic kidney desease, stage 3. I have suffer from fibromyalgia for 30 plus years. He looked at a few lab tests I had with me. He said I don't have stage 3. He figured more like stage one or 1 1/2. He said I was overweight, which I gained 40 plus in about a month. Epstein Bar Virus has been 600 plus for a year. He asked if I was in pain exercising. He asked what I was going to do. I eat very little and am getting more ill. Waste of time
in Rio Rancho, NM |
Horrible experience. He is a very rude man. I had kidney stones and was in so much pain and he kept saying I had no stones. I'm also pregnant so I understand there isn't a lot you can do but I did get ultrasound done on my kidneys and he didn't even look at it just sent me home. I ended up in the ER again with pain and he kept saying it was nothing and sent me home again. Finally went to Albuquerque hospital and sure enough it was stones. I would definitely not recommend this man.
