1/12/17 - I'v been sick since the day he put the stint in. He wouldn’t even let me tell him what was going on with me. I was absolutely desperate to see him and told him so. So much was going on due to the medications he had me on. I started to tell him what was going on and asked him about what med might be making me feel so bad and he went off on me for no reason. Take away his license to practice medicine! Ask the nurses how I left the office! It wasn't pretty. Horrific bedside manner!

I arrived for my appointment at 10:30 to be seen by the doctor only to have to walk out at 12:20 after not being seen for almost 2 hours. This Dr. may be great but he needs to find a better way to schedule his appointments. My time is valuable just as much as yours.
