    I actually hated this doctor. He's condescending and arrogant. His diagnosis and prescriptions left me worse than I was.

    This is the 3rd time that I have seen this doctor and he is the most unprofessional, useless doctor that I have ever met. I went in last night with kidney pain and after 2 stints and 4 stones, I am pretty sure that I know what kidney pain is. He took a urine sample and blood then said there was nothing that he could do. He proceeded to get nasty with me when I asked him to please look at my kidneys. I was in the ER for 3 hours for him to do nothing. I'm filing a complaint today.

    I was in the ER about a week ago & I had the most horrible backpain, he did not offer me anything for the pain, his bedside manner was disgraceful...he didn't do any X-Rays....no CT scans, I had horrible pain in my back that went into the right side of my groin...I was scared & I was getting sick from the pain...he ordered a urine test & a blood test....he came back in & told my Husband & I that he didn't find anything & we should go home....turns out I had a fracture in my back. Never again!!
