Patient Comments (2)
Seattle, WA |
Worst doctor ever. Was suffering from chronic nausea, rapid unexplained weight gain, other problems from a bad b/c pill. He did two invasive tests, confirmed diagnosis, and then proceeded to berate me for being "fat". He said "calories in, calories out, that's all there is," and "I guess we could check your gallbladder but we won't find anything because you're just a hypochondriac". Have since been diagnosed with low cortisol and adrenal fatigue, low thyroid. And gallbladder was removed. Awful.

Do not see this man. The epitome of incompetence. Prescribed a 100-200mg dose of a medicine that is intended to be taken at 10-20mg dose. Did not notify me, only the pharmacy when I attempted to refill it.
Thank you for providing your feedback, it's greatly appreciated. Patient reviews are the best way for us to hear about how we're doing and where we need to make improvements. We apologize for the prescription error and hope that we may be able to win your favor again, as patient satisfaction is crucial. Please let us know if you have any questions and how we can better serve you in the future.
