Patient Comments (1)

Would not recommend this Dr. After being referred to Dr Minchew twice by Duke Rheumatology Doctors each time Dr Minchew stated he would not treat my husband unless his primary care Dr. authorized it. Never mind that Duke had provided CT scans blood work etc. However Dr Minchew had no problem...more
