I had a HORRIBLE experience with this doctor. My husband and I were on vacation in NC. I am pregnant and had a burning sensation and desperately needed medication. Our insurance said this doctor was in our network. He ran a ton of blood tests and prescribed something that didn't work. It wasn't until just before leaving NC we called again and asked to see another doctor that we saw a midwife there who was amazing and told me to get Probiotics which fixed everything. They charged us $700.
