I always felt that he insisted I come back for follow ups too often. I always felt that every time I had a pain or discomfort the answer was always to increase my prescription dosage. My most recent blood work he ordered resulted in nearly $2K in claims being submitted to my ins. co. I think it's a bit excessive. I quit smoking over 5 years ago now and his records still show me as an active smoker. I've asked to have that changed on several occasions but it never changed.
