in Carson City, NV |
He seems very knowledgeable about medicine and explores options. He is a great listener. Other Drs didn't agree with my use of alternative medicine and he was open.

Not only was he late to work, he then spent about 3 minutes with my wife and didn't even care to hear about her real issues. He prescribed my wife a medication that she has taken in the past and did not respond well to. He didn't care, HE PRESCRIBED HER THE SAME THING! Again. Um hello! Try listening to your patient! I had an appointment with him that i will be cancelling.

Hard to understand how some rate him so highly. Basically, he comes in and does a 3 minute evaluation. Flat, uninterested exam and personality. The price, if out of pocket, is high by even Nevada rates.
