Patient Comments (1)

This man is extremely incompetent. I believe his old age is affecting his ability to properly diagnose a patient, as well as treat them with kindness. He makes rude comments about patients, and assumes that young patients are using illegal drugs. He is a horrible man who will smile in your face...more
