Patient Comments (1)

I would NEVER recommend this incompetent doctor to ANYONE. In 2008, he diagnosed me with diabetes, told me I was type 2. Over and over again i BEGGED him to consider the OUTSIDE chance i might be type 1. He flatly refused, told me i was definitely type 2, but no matter what i did, it got worse...more
