Patient Comments (1)
Kitty Hawk, NC |
He missed my diagnosis and failed to refer me for appropriate therapy. He ignored my symptoms for several years and attributed it to psychological issues when it was due to a real disease that was actually treated by a specialist that I had to fine on my own. This was after paying the extra concierge fee. I had a test pending on my last office visit after I left the practice after moving. The office never contacted me with the results after calling them multiple time to ask for them.
