    in Myrtle Beach, SC |
    We encountered this doctor at Grand Strand regional hospital. I truly believe that this man helped my Mother to her grave . He is rude and does not like to be questioned at all .He discontinued life-saving medication for her and did not consult with our family at all. I feel He did not do anything in her best interest. We requested a new doctor and then she passed away before she could see the new doctor Dr.Head signed her death certificate which I find very disturbing! Beware for your life
    Very poor bedside manner and didn't communicate information well. He was surprisingly rude and had a distasteful sense of arrogance. If I could choose a doctor it would definitely NOT be him.
