Patient Reviews (2)
in Atlanta, ga |
He was quick to give a diagnosis of seizures and has no bedside manner. He did not take the time to listen to our concerns. We would never go back to him or his office.
in Cumming, GA |
Repeatedly misdiagnosed by his nurse Kathy Teta and not allowed to book an appointment to confer with him directly. We now have the right medication for the right migraine with another Dr. If you child is in dire pain they may take 4-5 hours to call you back. Receptionist hung up on me once and the year before told me If it s that urgent than to to the ER. When we did go to the ER the Dr. on call was mystified why we were told to go to the ER. The children are running the classroom.
