very unethical, holds back drug screenings & always wants to hug his female patients

At first I thought Dr Carstens was a great Doctor. He preformed a Drug test on me, which I thought was completely fair and a normal until the results came back that I had other medications in my system. He wouldn't believe me, when I told him it couldn't be true. Since then I have found a new provider, who requested another drug test, which came back NORMAL !!!!My new dr actually takes the time to sit down listen to me, and help me with my concerns.

Started seeing Dr. Carstens in Novemeber 2015 and have only seen him 5 times and he just opened up his new practice in Hamburg NY 3 months before i had first seen him ! Wait time to see him, is about 3 hours ! Doesn't even sit with you in the medical room , after your 1st visit and tells you to come to his office and writes your scripts out , and your on your way ! He doesn't give you the time to talk about other meds or treatments he can do with you ! Now closing and dont care about you !

He has no time for negative feedback. He complains about other physicians and medical practices and asks you not to repeat it. He has no time for those with mental health issues. He forces religious music on his patients.
