I was very disappointed. He did not give me the chance to ask my questions, he cut me off, made me feel inferior and basically "dismissed" me. I felt very mistreated, upset and frustrated. My respect for Drs in the U.S has diminished drastically after this visit.

He is very nice, he takes his time with you, let's you know everything about your health and his plans to how he is going to help you. There are few times where we just walked in and he was kind enough to see us. I am so glad he is taking care of my dad.
