Patient Comments (2)
in Ruston, LA |
Completely incompetent, Warning do not use this Dr. he has no concern for the wellbeing of new patients. I was looking for simple continuity of care and this dR would not prescribe any of the medications I have taken for 7-10 years, in so doing leaving me in a place where i would run out of my medication and if that happened as happened in the past i would suffer seizures and possibly death. He uses a website and only Doctors as that website indicates. He also insulted me repetitively
