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.

My son had his tonsils out on 9/20 with this surgeon. He did NOT prescribe antibiotics following the surgery and a week later my son was at Urgent Care with pus running down his throat. He has had a fever for 3 weeks and been at urgent care twice for help. He has been on 2 rounds of antibiotics and went in for his follow up with Dr. Belizario. His blood pressure was 150/100 and he still had a temp. This doctor was not concerned at all and sent him out the door. Do NOT use him!

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.
