Patient Comments (1)
in Seattle, WA |
His practice has become to overwhelming for him, has way to many patients in his practice. He rushes through appointments causing clinical oversights to treatment plans, and forgets serious life altering referrals, and medications. His clinical listening skills are shortcut clinical judgements, doesn't carefully answer all patients questions. He confused my chart with someone else's. His RN isn't a thorough and accountable liason. These are not acceptable clinical healthcare standards. Sad!
