      This man is the most unprofessional, rude and uncaring doctor I have ever had the displeasure to meet. He took a personal call to chat in the middle of the appointment. Whenever I brought up a concern about something, he would tell me I'm actually not experiencing that . In addition, he told me that he would make me "better" version of "whatever" I am now. He didn't bother to try to diagnose me- instead he would bring up tests he could run and ask if I thought I needed them- how would I know?
