likelihood of recommending him is 0....he didn't check my records otherwise he would not have overdosed me with corticosteroids, cortisone...which on my record it clearly states ALLERGY: Cortisone. So as a result, for over a year my face and neck have been flaming red and painful...do not put your trust or your health in the hands of that guy.
