Patient Comments (8)

I saw him almost a year ago for fibromyalgia and I found him rude, inattentive, and about as helpful as a dead man. Egotistical, listened to Nothing I said, answered None of my questions. I knew no more after seeing him than I learned on the internet. Would recommend him Never in a Million years!
