Patient Comments (2)
Largo, FL |
The experience my Fiance had was bad. The doctor is extremely knowledgeable but seems to have forgotten his bedside manors. This Doctor saw her in the hospital during a flare up of optic-neurotice (inflamation of the optic nerves) most likely due to MS. the Doctor was impatient, demanding, and rough with her. In the end he said my fiance was uncooprative when she couldn't look in the directions he demanded her to look in because of the inflamed nerves.
