Sparks, NV |
Worst doctor i have ever met!! He has a horrible bedside manner, is so rude and clearly only cares about the money and not making people better!! I would never recommend this doctor to anyone! I was in the ER and he came in and started interrogating me then tried to send me home, then it turns out i was bleeding internally and was in the hospital for 4 days. This man should not be a doctor and needs to get a different job!!!
