This doc is geriatric alright, he's out of touch w/ modern medicine, even w/ the medication that was already on the market b/4 he was even born & he told me the side effects of Levothyroxine DOESN'T INCLUDE diarrhea, when I checked then went on WebMd & Medicinenet.com & it clearly stated diarrhea is one of the size effects & I was LITERALLY dying ever since I started the med w/ that multiple sides effects! I think he should retire b/4 he get his license yanked! He's too old to practice medicine!
I had to call the office over 10 times to get this doctor to call me back. I patiently waited over 5 days for a call back to go over my test results. On the 6th day I called again and he had the nerve to tell the receptionist to tell me my results still didn't have the professionalism to pick up the phone and talk to me about my results. Very unprofessional and I won't be returning as a patient or referring him to anyone.
