Patient Comments (1)
Chesapeake, VA |
Avoid this doctor, he is the epitome of a quack. He writes prescriptions for medicines which aren't even made, then tells the pharmacy to just change it. So I've spent my day first at the hospital, then hours driving back and forth to get a prescription for pain after surgery, only to have the pharmacist tell me that the medicine doesn't exist the way he wrote it. It's sad when the pharmacist and their staff say the doctor has an attitude and they don't even want to deal with him. Just avoid!
