Patient Comments (6)
Tampa, FL |
I waited 8 months to initially be seen then he didn't bother to look at any of my blood work or records. He did nothing more than my PCP already had done. And was quick to prescribe lots of heavy meds and tell me he didn't support my natural homeopathic healing methods that had been working. He prescribed me stuff I was clearly allergic to (it was in my records) Luckily I never took it. This guy is maybe not incompetent but he is a terrible Dr with no compassion for patients among other things.

He spent maybe 2-3 minutes each time I came. It was obvious after 4 times that I came to see him that he wasn't interested in truly helping me. I couldn't even understand him very well. If he couldn't help me, he should've just told me instead of me coming back for really nothing...
Atlanta, GA |
This Dr added hydroxychloroquin to my cocktail of meds for RA, which consists of methotrexate and Prednisone. I complained that I disagreed with with?the new medication and it disagreed with me. Instead of the doctor listening to what I was experiencing, I was terminated as a patient. Later I was hospitalized with a tear in my stomach lining caused By the medicine.

My primary and 2 other specialists think I have an autoimmune disease. He poked me a few times and it didn't hurt. Said it was fibromyalga. No testing needed. I am a person in severe pain and don't want to be on pain meds. I want my life back! Would he dismiss a member of his own family this way? His wife? His child? An hour drive each way and didn't do the tests I went in to have done. If you want to be treated with respect by a dr willing to help... don't look here.

Doctor is horrible at his job! Over books himself, wait time is so long, staff is rude and unprofessional! The doctor will spend 5 minutes in the room with the patient and does not listen or explain anything! Very bad English which makes it very hard to understand him at all. All this doctor cares about is money! Never took any time to get to know me as a patient from the very 1st appt to the last over a year later this was the biggest waste of time and money! DISGUSTING EXCUSE FOR A DOCTOR!
Knowledgeable. Made sure all my questions were thoroughly answered.
