Patient Comments (2)
in Norwalk, CA |
I was the last appointment for the day on a Friday. I was in his office for 4 minutes. He said he didn't know what the lump in my finger was and I should come back when it's bigger. It had already gotten bigger and I was worried about it. No tests, ultra sound, mri etc to find out what it is. Cancer is rare in the finger but that does not mean someone is not going to get it. Who knows if I may be the rare case and this doctor couldn't care less. Horrible doctor rushed me out of his office.
