Patient Comments (1)
Worst doctor on the face of the planet. This man has single-handedly destroyed my family and my loved one whom was his patient. This man has no bedside manner whatsoever, and an extreme deficiency in medical knowledge. He essentially does not even have any common sense. Even his own peers at USC Keck medical center question plan of treatment for my loved one. Second third and fourth opinions were all contrary to his ideas. First and last time I will ever consult with a DO.
