This Dr was called in by another physician to check my mother..I knew she was dying..Dr. Armstrong was so inconsiderate. No bedside manner. I just asked him to be upfront about my mother..he made a remark. I asked my uncle to talk to him after that..he is a Dr. He spoke nicely to him. Dr. Armstrong just seemed we were wasting his time..I will never forget that feeling of having a Dr look down on you.

This doctor was so full of himself. He was rude and a huge jerk. He did not care about his patient care. He actually told my dad to go buy a computer and he could not give him a computer. He should have provided him with information on his condition. This doctor is horrible.
Newton, NC |
Worst Dr I have ever seen. He was extremely rude to me and then told me I was fired and to leave and never come back. I don't work for him so don't know how I could get fired. He seemed really messed up in some way. I didn't understand him at all. He seems very disoriented . Very weird experience .
