Patient Comments (1)
in Westfield, MA |
Did not take my symptoms seriously, treated me like a mental case and even deferred to mental health. Later learned from ER visit my symptoms were related to migraines. Absolutely the worst treatment I've ever received from a provider. He is a liability to any practice, and his license should be suspended pending extensive liability and patient relations training.
