Extremely unethical. Threatens his patients, extremely condescending. Overprescribed a medication that made patient extremely sick, depressed, suicidal and unable to function normally. Blamed HER for the symptoms instead of acknowledging his mistake, threatened to put her in a mental hospital....more

His staff consists of one person, and it is impossible to get her to get anything done.
