Albany, NY |
Saw twice and each visit was over 2 hours. And only saw him about 10 to 15 mins. Did not read my medical history which I provided records. Waste of time appointments.
in Schenectady, NY |
In short he gave up on us when it became difficult. Kept my fiancee waiting month after month after month with not a single call back & no weekly prescriptions given that were promised in December (4 months ago). We were about to call a lawyer on him for malpractice, but went to a different doctor instead. This new doctor did FAR more for my fiancee in one week than Dr. Allen Gerber EVER did in 9 months. All he was good for was instilling depression, stress, lack of treatment in the 2 of us!
Colonie, NY |
Diagnosed me without doing any tests, put me on medicine. Got a 2nd opinion... good thing I did because it turned out I had cancer and the medicine he put me on would have killed me after a few months. His staff is really rude on the phone and one girl screamed at me for no reason because i was crying.
Schenectady, NY |
Only interested in getting a kick back from drug company. He gets paid to do all these conventions about this drug he tried to put me on. He only looked at one MRI not even done by him and no other testing and tried to put me on this MS medicine. I went to a few other doctors for second opinions and found out I have another disease and this drug would have killed me. Scary stuff!! AVOID THIS DOCTOR.
Schenectady, NY |
Prescribed me Tysabri, without doing any testing to diagnose MS. He told me that Tysabri was the only medication out there for treating MS, besides chemotherapy.Insurance denied me, so BioGen donated the medication. He refused treatment unless his mark up was paid to him at his injection center only. I later found out he is the paid spokes person for this drug. I do not have MS, and further testing shows this treatment could have killed me. A dangerous money hungry man.
