I have been very pleased with Dr. Wallace. I find him to be a very thorough and extremely comforting. He's actually very funny and has a great sense of humor. NO complaints here.

Rude, does not look at you when you talk, doesn't answer you. Went to him for my ears, next day had a question, he calls back and first thing he says I told you there is nothing wrong with your ears. Doesn't even let me say anything. I said wait one minute, you can give me 2 min like you gave me. I told him what I thought of him, he says go find another doctor. I said you know it. I told him what to do then. Has no bedside manner, thinks he is god. Just walks out of room no goodbye.

My experience with this Dr. Was VERY unsatisfactory ! He was rude, no bedside manner. He was very mad when I told him my throat hurt after he examined me. He told me my throat was fine. I explained my throat was sore and he was visibly upset.. telling me that he would do a scope just to shut me up! He was very short and did not explain anything about what I was going to experience with the scope.. Well he found a cyst on my tonsil. So he is not thorough either.. Don't go to this Dr.
