Very inconsiderate dr. No compassion. He couldn't care less if you're in pain or not. Didn't explain my care to me, asked inappropriate questions in front of children (he could've asked another way!), ran unnecessary testing & had me pee in a cup twice because they didn't do all the tests the first time, but then didn't do a culture which is what I needed to have done to see what bacteria was present & then he prescribed a drug that he didn't know for sure if my infection was susceptible to.

They never follow through with what they are supposed to do. No one remembers you. On the fourth visit they are still asking if they have your medical records. My husband had to go days without his diabetes and nerve medication because no-one would call it in to the pharmacy, even with us calling daily. Find another doctor!

I waited everything I went hours those stars are simply a lie. His bedside manners were horrible , just rude . I i low thyroid and have issues with weight I excercise and watch what I eat , he refused after numerous attempts to lead back to subject to discuss with me . I have numerous health issues and had to take off for surgery this year he wanted to know why I was applying for disability . They lost test . They were rude on phone .
