Patient Comments (2)
in Doylestown, PA |
rushed!!!
Philadelphia |
This man is a disgrace to the profession. He is rude and unprofessional. I am the health care decision maker for a woman with a disability. This man refused to treat her disease because he didn't feel it was appropriate due to her disability. His communication is poor and the treatment we all received from the "doctor" was the worst in my experience as a decision maker.
