If your that stupid in your understanding of human sexuality then you must be just as stupid in your understanding of otolaryngology. When you leave town I'll be happy to help you move and will make sure your next employer is well informed and reads your brilliant letter. And I'm not even gay! DR....more

First, the reception answered the phone by saying, "Can you hold please?" Then after waiting on hold, I find out that the office is 2-weeks out for accepting new patients, even though the site says ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS.
