Went in for a headache came out with a multiple test. Never going back. Doctor only spent 5 min with me and was rude.

This was the strangest Dr visit I've EVER had! He talked in circles while repeating himself, insulted my weight and when I asked a question he made me feel like I was an idiot and talked entirely too fast. I felt like an inconvenience, not a patient! I was supposed to go back since I wasn't...more
