HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! Despite him not being clear on his diagnosis he also talked in a very prideful and sarcastic way! He also wants you to see his "recommended" x-rays and MRI clinics! Payed money and waited a long time to come back more confused. Definitely not professional at all.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. FRONT DESK STAFF IS LACKING IN COMMUNICATION SKILLS, THEY WANT YOU TO SEE HIS RECOMMENDED DOCTORS AND THEN POORLY FOLLOWS UP. THE DOCTOR HIMSELF HAS LITTLE TIME TO SPEND WITH YOU, ASKING QUESTIONS WITHOUT LISTENING TO THE ANSWER!!!
