Patient Comments (2)
Chicago, IL |
Very unprofessional doctor. He explained to my son who is suffering from depression that its basically all in his head and probably doesnt need medication, when he's seen other doctors and been on other meds. He told my son that he needed to change the way he thought. He would also ask the same question 3 times (in a row). Very strange. Then, to top it off, the office charged different co-pays, then claimed I never paid. I had to send proof. Then they called back to collect the difference.

Called the office numerous times on behalf of my teen son.....over a month later they just returned my call! Obviously does not care about people in need of his services. Would never contact him again!
