Never, ever, like ever go see this man. He was my neuro for two years out of desperation (no other neuros in Wasilla at the time) I can't even go into specifics because it would take days but trust me, he is awful!!
Wasilla, AK |
This "doctor" is a total jerk. After 15 minutes of my brothers visit he said our time was up, he had to go see another patient. When we were in his office again I told him that doctors not wanting to talk to their patients on the phone was wrong. Sponslor got up went to the door, said he'd be back. He never came back. We sat there for 15 minutes waiting for him to return. Every Rx that he has faxed over to the pharmacy has been wrong. We've had to have it corrected, taking 2 or 3 days to get it.

I felt like I was being abused. His staff conducted electrical shock and then he repeated the test again when he came into the office.
