Patient Comments (1)
Vienna, VA |
This doctor is arrogant, patronizing, unresponsive, and downright dangerous. He plays psychiatrist and prescribes medications without adhering to standard protocol (e.g., you do not just stop one drug and start a different one from one day to the next). It takes a crisis (caused by his own making) to get him to actually review imaging results and contact you. For conditions that he apparently has experience treating, he also does not follow standard protocol. The child suffers as a result.
