Patient Reviews (1)
in Elizabeth, NJ |
His bedside manner was HORRIBLE. He was basically pawing my daughters face and telling her, hush, be quiet I'm not hurting you! HORRIBLE. He just wanted to get the exam over with and did not want to take the time to slow down and be gentle with my child. He was annoyed when I asked specific questions to clarify his findings. Front desk staff was rude as well but... That is the least of the problem. This man really has no business working with children.
