Kyle, TX |
Dr. Sullivan rushed me in and out of his office. I was seen by him for a total of less than 8-10 mins. I went in for pain in my leg and knee, so after ruling out a possible ligament tear, he misdiagnosed me. He prescribed anti-inflammatory meds and nothing to help manage pain. My pain persisted and mobility decreased, so I called his assistant for advice. After leaving multiple messages I have yet to hear back. I have since been to the ER and correcty diagnosed w/ something life threatening.

If you like waiting 1-2 hours in the waiting room then this is your doctor! If they can't respect my time, then it's time to find another doctor! This is not the first time either!
