Patient Comments (1)
in Queen Creek , AZ |
RUDE! When we asked questions about newly prescribed medication, he acted like we were supposed to know the medical terms he was using. When asked to clarify, he just glared. Did not return for further advised medical tests. Will never put myself in this uncomfortable and demeaning position with him again. Cancelled all care and appointments with him. Looking for new provider.
