Patient Comments (1)
I realized after 6 months of seeing Dr. Kazkaz that he was not treating me based on the referrals I brought to him, but working with disability, WC & unethical use of Epic (do not allow info sharing) downplay my symptoms and provide an injection in my head to worsen my symptoms that was not an occipital injection. He ignored any emails I sent to provide symptoms to assist with a diagnosis and blatantly told me he was only treating me for a diagnosis that was unrelated to my symptoms; unethical
