If I had to choose between Dr. Dees and Dr. Pepper, I'd choose the can of soda for any treatment over this guy. He was inconsiderate and didn't even care to hear how I was feeling. I would never recommend him to my family or friends! He definitely needs a reality check that he's not really a great person. I, myself, am a medical professional and have never met a more condescending person.
