Not sure how I feel entirely. My entire time with this Dr was spent as he wouldn’t let me talk much. Kept talking at me and kept trying to make me feel stupid. He hardly even gave me an exam yet gave me medication. I’m not sure what to think yet but not entirely pleased at all upon meeting him....more
