The staff at his office is terrible and unprofessional. They actually put a note in my file that said i was obnoxious. Why? Because instead of rescheduling a late appointment, they make you sit for over 2 hours. Also, why does the receptionist give you medication samples without the doctor even coming out to tell you how to administer it. I wound up in the hospital. Never call you back, they leave you in the dark.
