I have a chronic illness that has no cure and is knows as the Suicide Disease. I have been diagnosed by 23 DR with the same illness. This clown tells me I don't have this illness that I only have PTSD and need Al-non meeting and spiritual guidance to get ride of PTSD. This DR has been sued and doesn't have a good reputation. He got his license in a Cracker Jack Box. This is the 2nd time I seen this DR and he didn't go though my notes or files just his own opinion.

I checked the Dr's history when I got home after my 1st visit. He performed a wrong site surgery on a won am almost 80 years old! The medical board took action. I was not surprised after my misdiagnosis. I will also be contacting the medical board with proof of the horror he put me through during my 15 minute visit. Read his background before you go so you don't waste your time like I did. He made a lady cry when we were checking out. Wonder if Resolute knows his past. Don't go!!
