      He has treated me for about 4 years. I complain about symthoms and what he basely says is. I'll see you in 6 months. Another time I complain and he gives me more medicine without explaining anything. I look up the medication is for and what symthoms are. That is how I have I find out what the prescription is for. He doesn't explain anything at all. It's terrible I have to find what heart problems I have by looking med up on computer
