in Mesa, AZ |
I would not got to this Dr he do not care about you or your Treatment. He doesn't even know you and tell his staff how to take care of their Patience Even if it hurts the patient he does not care what so ever and many of his staff's patience have left the practice to finding doctors elsewhere for their pain management.
