Patient Comments (1)
Philadelphia, PA |
This doctor is the worst clinician. He does not listen to his patients concerns, he is not open to outside professional advice. He has poor bedside manner and he lacks empathy and clinical diagnosis skills. His 40 years of work experience is worthless. If you want to be treated professionally and receive thorough care, go to another practice fast and never turn back.
