Patient Comments (1)

Does not appear to listen to symptoms being reported and documents conflicting statements. Becomes frustrated verbally if conventional therapy is not helping and does not explain or follow up on new therapies or modalities offered. Very short office times for asking questions. Largest problem is...more
