Patient Comments (1)
in Highlands, NC |
This doctor completely misdiagnosed my problem. Evidently, he is not able to read x-rays adequately. Additionally, he gave me a very strong medicine that I could not take. I phoned his office, spoke with him, and was told that he'd done all he could, essentially. After a year more of suffering, I went to a group in Greenville and finally got relief for my issue. It was so simple, if he had just diagnosed me correctly. I cannot recommend this doctor to anyone.
