Columbia, SC |
I have not seen this doctor in years. While I was seeing him, I found him to be more of a joker, always clowning around, even when I needed a serious physician. He never seemed to take me seriously. The final straw was when he started me on a new medication. He told me nothing about it, so I "googled it". There was one med it said not to take with this one, and I was on it. My faith in him plummeted. I know several others with similar experiences. We are all in the medical field.
