Horrid experience with Dr. M. After a heart-attack, and in a coma he told my wife multiple times I was "essentially brain-dead"; and that she should "pull the plug" ; while thankfully another Neurologist essentially overruled him and saved my life. Horrible Doctor, terrible bedside manner, and apparently quite incompetent; as his shotgun diagnosis of my condition was extremely incorrect, and could have easily cost me at most my life, at best brain damage if my wife hadn't requested a second Dr.
