Hobart, IN |
We not coming back Lost a tons of weight and all he did was talk to you to see how you are feeling no exam, blood test or other testing were done. Had to ask for test. When they did schedule a test it was a month away. If you want a good doctor who cares about you go to NW Hospital. There are top doctors there who want to find out what is wrong with you and just not give you pills First visit there they took blood test schedule test the next week.
