I physically attacked him once but he forgave me. :) He is really handsome, easy to talk to and has a good sense of humor. I wish he was still my Dr. But I would probably have to be hospitalized to make that happen. :(

Did not shake hand. Would not maintain eye contact. Stood up and left room in the middle of appointment. Not informative. HIGHLY Unprofessional. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
