Horrible! Highly unprofessional, demeaning, and offensive man. He does not care about what is best for his patients and seems to only be concerned w abusing his power for a quick ego boost. This was, by far, the worst treatment I have ever received from a health care “professional” and I would never recommend him to anyone. He doesn’t even deserve one star. Stay away!
