Reply
Initially I was hopeful he could help me with a complex array of issues I had. Instead he just kept running expensive test, prescribing new expensive supplements but never “treating” me. The last straw was when I had chronic debilitating pain, fainting, and nausea. They did nothing but told me to “wait and see” - a common approach for them. Then 6 months later another Dr. did surgery and discovered my appendix had been obstructed this whole time. Support staff are also rude and unresponsive.
