Patient Comments (1)
in Edison, NJ |
At the end of the appnt. he diagnosed my son with Frontal Temporal Dysfunction ADHD but stated he did not want to speak into detail in front of my son and that I should call him the next day ; he assured he would write a report and send to the school. I called he next day but he was unavailable. It took him 7 mos to sign the evaluation!! Once I read the evaluation he listed a diagnosis of a Personality Disorder..!! I believe he confused my son with another patient! I have no faith in this Dr!
