    After a very brief exam told me that I had Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and said that I could find a video on YouTube to teach me how to treat myself. Told me he would prescribe meds for symptoms and vanished. I don't feel comfortable treating myself by watching a video and would have liked a referral to a specialist to help administer the Epley maneuver, which is what it seams he wanted me to do at home. Was scheduled with him because he had appointments available. Very evident why.

    His staff did not look me in the eye. Dr Cafaro disappeared at the end of my appointment with him and his nurse offered me a rushed referral slip with no Dr's name on it. Also, he prescribed me the same birth control I specifically visited him to change.

    Insisted that my severe kidney infection was not a severe kidney infection but a result of my weight. I am 20 pounds overweight. And was peeing blood. Also, the same argument caused the untimely death of a friend's mother in 2004 because he would not listen to her.
