Horrible experience. Cut me off from speaking. Didn't cover my cat results, only later to find out he was wrong. Was rude and acted like he was in a hurry.

He was an hour late for the apt. When he did finally come in the room he rushed through through everything thing was with me maybe 10 minutes. He hardly let me speak and cut me off every time I tried to say something. Would not recommend this doctor at all, will be seeing a different ENT next week....more
