    Patient Comments (1)
    in Orono, ME |
    Articulate, charming, knowledgeable but nonetheless a defective windsock blowing hot air. Extensive travel expenses and time from Maine to Boston (Tufts Medical Center) and return home, well over an hour of my time in office and $1,000 in bills for Medicare and no action; no referrals, no treatment and ineffective smoke with none of the promised results- nada. Waste of time and energy for a disabled person desperately seeking medical care.
