Patient Comments (2)
Clifton Park, NY |
Despite taking certain medications that I have been taking for years and perscribed by my two previous primaries he refused to write script for me. This resulted in severe neuropathy pain I didn't need to go through and a lot of sleepiness from not receiving something to keep me going. Very weird guy. Scared little bunny on anything controlled.
Troy, NY |
He gave me his full attention and seemed truly interested in my health overall. Gave me all the time I needed.
