He doesn't listen to his patients. I'm a very high risk patient/ stroke survivor with blood clot issues, he prescribed me blood thinners and sent me away for 6 months, this is alarming. When I complained about the blood clots still, he refused to allow me to get a lab done and had his nurse refer me to see a obgyn. All doctors are not good person to person. They may graduate top of their class, but it may be different with actual patients.
