Patient Comments (1)
This doctor does not value the health or safety of his patients. He doesn't believe in helping patients with legitimate health issues; he prefers to say that the issue is psychological. He believes spending time with patients is a waste of his own time. If you value your life, DO NOT see this doctor.
