horrible doctor. found out my SSA blood results were elevated (which indicates potential Sjorgrens syndrome) and he basically said it’s really not a big deal to have a dry throat and there’s nothing he can do for me. He left me so defeated. Now I have a doctor who actually is taking it seriously considering it is an autoimmune disorder. There actually are things to do and ways to figure out if it’s for sure what i have, but according to him there isn’t. I’ve never had such a heartless doctor who looked at me like such an inconvenience instead of helping me. And what’s up with leaving the patient doors open for all to hear the CONFIDENTIAL conversations!? When i asked for my door to shut he acted like they’re always shut so he didn’t know why i said that. Uhm considering i sat there for a half hour and was able to hear everyone’s issues and could see inside the room tells you that was NOT the case. DO NOT GO TO HIM. and i’m not one to complain. But i despise this place. waste of $$!!!!
