Patient Comments (1)

in Columbia, MO |
This was the rudest Dr. I have ever experienced. He would hardly pay any attention to me when I was telling him about my ailment, and when he did he became condescending. I needed to post a review about him because I don't want anyone to have to deal with this man!
