Des Moines, IA |
rude and condescending. wouldnt listen to a word i had to say, just wanted to argue every answer i gave him to every question he asked me about my symptoms. i would sooner live with my debilitating migraines than give this jerk one more penny of my money. its frustrating when you are in serious pain and some know it all sits on his throne and passes judgement on you without seriously trying to find out whats wrong or even to help. i REFUSE to see him again
