Consistently more than 2 hours late for appointments. Appointment needs to be scheduled 5-6 months in advance. Mis-diagnosed a heart condition that was identified by an off-staff cardiologist. NM's culture focuses on revenue not quality of patient care. Unresponsive to questions.

Needs to work on being more gentle with patients, especially during the recovery. I felt the way he treated my wife was not tactful at all. I would expect this from a free clinic, but not from Northwestern.
