McKees Rocks, PA |
Quite possibly the worst experience I have ever had with a physician, much less a specialist that I waited 4 months to see! He was short, cut me off several times, waggled his finger to stop me so he could tell me something of his own experience and after bringing my records from 2 plus years of issues- he scanned through them with little to no knowledge of what I had been through and in my opinion, ZERO solution aside from suggesting I wait to see a NEW DR. Colossal waste of time and money.

I would not under any circumstances recommend this dr. Waited in the room for 45 minutes to have him spend less then 5 with me. He was rude, condescending, and made it very obvious he did not care at all. He had no clue about any of my previous tests or medical history.

He was always a very kind, caring, and competent doctor!!! He never rushed or spoke down to me.. I wish every doctor was as wonderful as Dr. George Small.
