Same as review of June 6, 2019. Can't think his way out of the tiny brain inside his giant head. Appears friendly until you present him with an issue that requires him to rely on knowledge rather than something he can look up in the book in his pocket. Then he is done with you. He must have bought his degree from one of those Caribbean doctor mills.

Tells me how he thinks I should feel based on numbers, rather than paying attention to how I really feel and looking for ways to improve my conditions. Wanted to make sure I knew that I was not as smart as he was. He heard one thing I said about my condition and hung on to that like a junk yard dog and made up his mind without listening or being the least bit interested in hearing the complete story. I have lost all respect for this sad little man.
