Patient Comments (1)
Terrible treatment. Drove far from home to see this doctor, and he barely let me talk. Not compassionate at all. Quick look at me spoke very little and just went directly to his computer and noted my symptoms. That's all. Waste of my long drive and his arrogance was terrible. Don't go! Look for someone who will take time to listen and cares.
